Default Is it okay to leave your Rear Diff Temp Sensor out?

Long story shot I accidentally torqued the sensor instead of the rear diff bolt when putting it back on, and it cracked the sensor.

I secured it with the same spec bolt in the mean time and my rear temp light on the dash is on for now. Is it okay to leave the sensor out or should it be replaced right away? Any side effects with leaving it out?

Yep, what Jedi said. You'll be fine, replace it when you can.

Did that once myself. Kind of expensive.

You can normally just use the broken sensor till you get a new one.
