Hi,

Please tell me, does one need to change the Plug as well when changing the TDC sensor?

Thanks in advance

Smile Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

My 2003 Scenic (first type, phase II, 1.6L) experience start difficulties from time to time. The motor will turn and turn but never start. Eventually though, it comes to life. This can appear with weeks between or several times a day.

So I was very pleased to find this thread and have now cleaned the TDC sensor and taken some pics of the process. The removal and refitting was 5 minutes each. I believe I have one of the easier models in this regard, only the air intake had to be removed and a heater tube was a little in the way...

The wire connection was clean, but the sensor had small metal filings both at the tip and along the side. After a good cleaning it was re-inserted and I really hope that the following weeks will confirm that this was in fact the cause of the problems.

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Thanks for this thread!

Our Scenic RX4 developed random starting problems. I suspected the battery while a friend suspected a sensor of some kind.

The battery (5 year old Lead Calcium) was taken to a Battery Centre, tested with a "could be revived" diagnosis, charged, retested with a "failed" diagnosis, and finally replaced.

Before fitting the new battery, I removed and cleaned the TDC sensor. Upon initial inspection it looked clean (not spotless though) and there were no metal filings. I sprayed some penetrating lubricant on it and polished it with an earbud and some tissue paper which removed a lot of filth on the tiny metal sensor tip.

The RX4 fired up easily enough. Of course the battery may have also been the culprit. The long term will reveal any real improvement.

Thanks again to all!

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Hello there,

I am looking to follow these instructions after some starting problems lately with my megane 2007 1.4v, but am finding it hard to pinpoint the exact TDC sensor I need. Apparently according to the dealer on the phone, there are several different parts and I need the part number?

Don't really want to go ahead and take everything apart just to get to the product code.

Does anyone know which exact part in the pictures at the start of this thread would be and how I would go about getting a part number without having to get to the part in my engine?

my car is a Megane, 2007 1.4

Thanks
