Managed to do the wife's Megane at the weekend and thought I would post a couple of additional pics as they may help.

Firstly this is a 2003 1.6Vvt Dynamique.

A Is where the TDC Sensor is located, just under the black pipe. If you put your hand under there you will see it.
Unfortunately you will have to remove your battery, it makes access soooo much easier. Make sure you have your radio code before disconnecting the battery.

Remove the battery and the Tray. As can be seen by B



Closer


And here you can see it more clearly.


Undo the two bolts circled in RED with a 10m socket. *TIP* Use a Magnetic extendable stick available from ebay for a couple of quid. To grab the bolts as they come loose so they do not fall.

The TDC is wired into a plug which is just out of shot but circled in blue.

This is the TDC sensor and as you can see it is filthy.



Also the Haynes manual was incorrect. It states that you can follow the wiring back and unclip the TDC sensor. Sadly this is wrong you have 3 maybe 4 inches of wire to play with so cut the old plug off pretty close.

I bought the new TDC Sensor which has a blue plug on the back and it came with a bit of wiring with the socket that plugs into the new sensor. You will need to cut the old plug off and connect the old wiring onto the new plug.

Unfortunatley the new wires on the blue plug are not the same colour as the wires you will have cut. You have a 50/50 chance of getting it right here and a PITA if you put the car back together and it is wrong so make sure you get it right.

*TIP* I put the old plug next to the new plug and worked out which wire joined up with which. (Can't remember the colours) but it is self explanitory and quite easy. I used a couple of RED tube type wire connectors that you crimp. The TDC does come with some tubes but I think you have to heat them or something...far too complicated and you have bugger all room as it is.

Notice the Blue part, this is the difference from the old TDC sensor which is black and the revised newer one.


Then all you need to do is put it all back together and fire it up.

It should tick over nicely...phew...

Thanks guys. I do a lot of posts on focusowners.com for my own car. We all try and take progress pictures as we go so that others can benefit.

I use photobucket for my picture storage and do a bit of a write up to go with it. It's easy and hopefully the more we do it the easier it is for others to fix their own cars.

I'll add more as and when I need to fix more parts.

HANDY TIP!

When looking for your TDC , use a digital camera and take pics with the flash on to look around . then look at them in preview mode. this means u can find the TDC without taking the car apart. I was able to remove and clean mine by only taking the 2 bolts off the TDC , once I'd found it with the camera
