Hi Just joined this forum today .THANKS for the pics it saved me a lot of searching.Just to let people know they have changed connector now so you have to cut old connector off and join wires to new connector.Little bit more fiddly but still handy enough

Great pics scen1c, I have 2003 Kangoo 1.6 Automatic Gearbox with the same warm starting probs and this is the nearest i've got to finding the location Top Dead Centre sensor but still can't see it, have removed the air filter box but loads of coolant pipes in the way still.
I should point out that I am disabled and my wife is searching for it, and has done everything but stand on her head and still cant see it. We did an oil change the other day as we are a bit strapped for cash, and oil was spilt down the exhaust manifold heat shield any way there was a lot of smoke for a few days until it burnt off. Since then we've had the warm starting problem so it points to the Top Dead Centre sensor having read some of the messages on here.
I have a Renault Clio Haynes manual as they don't do one for the Kangoo, am I right in saying that the engines are the same in both models.

Please Please!! I would really appreciate any advice as wife won't use the car now and we live out in the sticks.
Cheers and many thanks to whoever started this fantastic site.

PS Wife has jus moved all the pipes and prised the wiring loom over and it's not there, can't see it anywhere surely it must have one??

Hi there congo .I only fixed the TDC sensor on kangoo 3 days ago.The best way i can describe how to find it is...........
Looking from front of car it is on right hand side of engine block juut above where engine joins clutch/gearbox.It might be easer to see if you remove air filter and airbox but is not really necessary.Looking at engine from side you should be able to see a cressant shaped bracket with two 6mm bolts (need 10mm spanner).Sensor is attached to this bracket.If you have one of the old type replacements it is just a case of removing bracket ,unpluging plug and replacing with new one.If you have the updated TDC sensor you will have to cut wires after plug and join on new plug.Its a little bit more fiddley but still easy enough.HOPE THIS HELPS

Hi Taraman6.
Many thanks for that. I'll get the wife to have another look.
Doing most work on this car would be so much easier if the bonnet were to open front to back instead of having to lay across the wing, wouldn't you agree.
With the gearbox being auto and a different shape will the Top Dead Centre sensor be in the same position as a manual box.
With your description hopefully we will find it today. Otherwise I did think of taking a picture with the air box removed and inserting it with my next message.

quick question, how often do tdc 's need replacing or do you just replace it when it goes? how do you tell when its gone?
