Do you think it could be a good idea to sand the free ground point (at least I suppose it's a ground point) until it's bare metal? The already occupied one seems to have little room for a new connector. Thanks again

Wouldn't do any harm yes. Cover it with a bit of grease when you've bolted the terminal up.

I just cut the ground connector's wire and the conductor is damaged. I don't know if it was the wire stripper or it was already like this. Do I have to cut in Another point or can I continue like this even with a reduced copper wire section? Thank you

I'd try and cut back a bit further if there's enough spare. Not critical though.

Repair done. It seems to work fine. Now I have 4.997V at the connector, so it's a proper ground. And from diagnosis I read exactly the value of the sensor (translated from Ohm to Celsius obviously). Thank you for help guys. If anyone is interested I'll post some pics :)

Great stuff! All the best, and send a photo yes.

Here some pics. I jointed the wires making a braid and folding it on itself. Than I covered with shrinking tube and tape. If you carefully watch the engine bay you see on the left the new ground with the blue connector, and if you follow the wire you see the 1.5 meters path back to the connector. Hope it will last, seems solid.
