Please see the link that I posted in my top post (this one:http://www.xoutpost.com/bmw-sav-foru...-rad-hose.html) to see how I saw the leak. No need to take any covers off or anything.

If it is a leak through that sensor, it is very little and sometimes hard to see. One way to see it if you drive around until it gets hot, then stop (say for lunch) and when you get back to the car, check that location. You should see some fluid on the bottom side of the hose (right below the sensor). At least that was the scenario in my case.
