What is the circled thing?

I believe it is the thermometer for outside ambient air temp reading. Well, my outside temperature reading goes crazy from time to time (always reads hot when dry and then reads super cold when wet). I could careless about the actual reading, but when the temperature reads too cold the A/C does not work (yeppers must save the A/C system). One thing I should note is that the veritcal portion of the bracket is missing and I had to wrap the thermometer around power steering (P/S) cooler to keep it from dragging (car came this way). I would like to know if this bracket just clips to the P/S cooler, or is it a part of the bracket that holds the front P/S cooler?

You'd be correct, ambient temp sensor. It's tied to the HVAC system through the instrument cluster module, as is just about every other module in the car. I can't remember how the bracket works at this point, but it would be nice to have it not touching any outside heat sources...
