    Thank you, I replaced it with the original Hyundai part 96985 3X000 as shown in the attached picture and it works perfectly:

    I also changed the position of the sensor, as I believe the original location is too close to a radiator and also directly exposed to moisture, ice and salt they use to melt ice on the road.
