Thumbs up Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Just to say many thanks to the contributors of this thread. I have a W reg Scenic Alize which would often start without any problems, but would sometimes need the key turning 10-50 times before it would fire up. I originally suspected the immobiliser (previous issues due to a leak near the sunroof), but this thread helped identify the TDC as being the probable culprit.
Using the pictures and advice I spent about 30minutes at the weekend carefully removing the battery, air filter and then the TDC . The TDC had a few metal filings stuck to it, so a quick clean with some white spirits on a cotton cloth and then I replaced it without any real issues.
Starting fine so far - fingers crossed! Thanks!

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Touch wood so far I've been lucky and never had to remove one. (Fingers crossed)

However from what I've seen they're pretty much all the same. I did see an AA Guy clean one on my FIL's car a 1.6 2002 scenic, the battery had to be removed to gain access (Make sure you have the radio code handy) This Guy had a good full set of tools & completed the the job in 15-20 minutes, albeit he only removed / cleaned / & replaced the original.

BTW from what I've seen on here, it's a cool Idea to turn on the side lights before reconnecting the battery to avoid frying the electronics, however the AA Guy didn't, without any problem.

The 2.0 is very almost the same except,

a) you do not have as much room. Air filter and battery is a must.

b) the engine casting is the other side of the sensor so when you remove the bolts you need to ease it towards the block, to get the sleeves out of the casting and then lift up.

When reassembling the sleeves do help to ensure you relocate them correctly

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Excellent thread, thanks. I have had all the symptoms described on my 2002 Scenic 1.6 16v so have changed the TDC sensor. However the problem has not gone away. Symtoms are intermittent starting especially when cold. When this occurs I have noticed that the fuel pump in the tank does not run either. Other times & when engine has started the problem does not re-occur again for a day or 2.
Does anyone know what I shoud try next?
Thanks
