Alfa 159 P2080 engine warning light

Hi all,

I'm really hoping someone can help me as this is driving me nuts.

I currently have the P2080 fault code causing the engine warning light to come on. I have tried cleaning the exhaust temperature sensor that is screwed into the DPF. I've also cleaned the electrical connector on the other end with contact spray, to no avail.

The warning light continues to be on. Also tried turning it off with Alfaobd. It comes back on after a couple of days.

Therefore, I guess the sensor is nackered and needs replacing. Finding one online however is an absolute nightmare. I found one on here: Fiat Alfa Dealer Parts

But it appears to be sold out. Just wondering if anyone can advise if either of the following parts will be compatible as I know that the Alfa 159, Saab 9-3 and Vectra share some similar components and both of these parts look identical to the one on my car:

Any help would be massively appreciated right now

Thank you
