Fuel level sensor most likely culprit, it's under left side of rear seat

Actually, there are two sensors, one on each side of the saddle tank. The right one has the switch that turns on that light. Check this site: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=CC03&;mospid=47493&btnr=16_0211&hg=16&fg=15

There is a need to find the root failure for this issue, is it the sender?
