    While upgrading the original HD's, I noticed (with magnifier) one temp sensor was like glued together and upon even gentle removal the two wires pulled right out of the black plastic plug end.

    In fact, the sticky end was just dangling in thin air and not even stuck to the HD. The other 2 sensors were OK.

    Anyone know where to get a replacement part?

    It was marked top to bottom on the sticky end, as follows:

    HF/01 Apple
    ^099 2008 copyright symbol
    820-2378-02

    I saw a site many months ago selling replacement Apple parts, but at the time did not think I would need their help so never bookmarked it.

    Any suggestions on US supply companies?

    I bought a Temp. sensor from AppleComponents a while back.
    I don't have the part number any more. It was something like $19.95 plus shipping.
    Try eMailing them.
