I have a 08 520d E61 touring and the coolant sensor is not

Resolved Question:

I have a 08 520d E61 touring and the coolant sensor is not working which means the fan is constantly on. When we checked with the motor factors replacement they couldnt tell which sensor was needed. Where would it be located so I can check which sensor is required? Thanks
