I need to buy a knock sensor for my 96 Continental R. This part does not have to be a Crewe part. Any suggestions on which one is readily available with a plug and play feature?

Sorry for the vary late answer: the Lammerholms in our cars are unfindable. You will need to adapt a usual Bosch ring type. It's precisely the same pluy but you will need to machine an adaptor I believe M12 to M6? Tell me in case you need the product number ofBosch.

I have done exactly that.
I bought Bosch part number 0261231188 and it arrived yesterday from the USA. Now the check engine light has gone out so I will not replace it until it returns. Yes I will need to put a bolt through it to install it.

Regarding the Substitution of the original Lamerholm Sensors with the Bosch items, for me there is a question of compatibility. I'm no specialist in Engine-electronics but as far as i understand the working principle of a Knock-Sensor, there is an output-signal from the Sensor which is just a Voltage in relation to the acceleration. The electronics to detect Knocks ist calibrated to the characteristics of the Sensor (Voltage / Acceleration). So if i use another Sensor with different characteristics than the original Sensor, there is the possibility that knocking is not detected...
Please let me know, if i'm totally wrong with my thinking...

As far to my knowlodge the Bosch sensor 0261231188 is the wrong one for our cars. The correct one should be 0261231006. I do not have datasheets of those two sensors, but impedance, senstivity ... maybe different. I share Patrick's concerns..
The reason is that our cars use Saab Turbo management, my TurboECU shows a Saab parts number together with the RR parts number. Saab uses the above mentioned Bosch sensor 0261231006. Consequently this should be the right sensor. There are many alternatives to this Bosch sensor by Facet, VDO ...
