Brilliant! Thanks.

I was having starting problems with my 2001 Megane 1.4, eventually I found that if I tried three or four quick turns of the ignition in succession it would start - the problem being the starter motor would give out or key break if I'd carried on using that solution!

I followed your instructions and initially didn't even replace the TDC sensor, just sprayed it with a dose of WD40... voila, problem fixed, I do intend to replace the part in the next couple of weeks though.

Do i need this?

Great thread...for me anyway. For the second time in my cars life I'm going to change the TDC sensor. Changed last one about 18 months ago. Just phoned dealer for price of TDC 25, that's not a problem but they now say that this part has been updated and I need to purchase a 'loom connector' so I can fit this new type TDC . Anyone heard about this?
