Cool Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

My wife has a Proton Savvy (56) It's been having terrible starting problems for a year - leading up to this week when it is every single time she tries to start the car...
After hours of internet reserach I came across this thread - I know the Savvy uses Clio parts and engine so am pretty adament it's the TDC sensor too.
But how do I get to it in the Savvy engine, will it be built exactly the same as a Clio inside? I'm wanting to give it a good clean first before taking it in to a garage really - so should I just find a Clio answer in here or does anyone have experience with the little Savvy?
I'm a complete car novice but have fixed a few bits if I have good instructions and clear pictures
Any help greatly received!

Secondly, here is the view going into the right hand side of the engine as you look into it



Thirdly, I removed the air box, you don't need to, but it makes access easier and found the TDC



Here it is unbolted...



Simply unclip and replace with the new part.

Old and new...



I know everyone says it's an easy job, and...honestly...it really is!
Thank you very much as I have been having problems for weeks with my car starting initially and cutting out then all fine again until today 26th Dec 2013 car full of kids and failed to start but I removed and cleaned and when Renault Dealer opens I'll buy a new TDC sensor

Smile Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

I was having starting issues, it would start first time often but most of the time it would take a few turns to get the car started.

Took the TDC sensor off, used sandpaper and WD40 to clean it, and has started first time ever since.

Thanks for the thread!

Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Just cleaned my TDC sensor (2001 1.4 Megane Scenic). Been having intermittent starting problems for a year. Car stats first time now. Well worth 15 mins of your time.
