DCIKEV: Have just changed my sensor as per your instructions, no problems apart from i broke the retaining clip for the electrical connection on top of no4 coil , Have done a few trips and management light still on, without access to a reader how can i get the light to go out ? Thanks

if the cam sensor was at fault the light should go out on it's own, that's if it was the cause of the light to come on in the first place,failing that it is worthwhile purchasing an obd code reader to properly identify the problem and cancel the lights out .
Currently in dcikev's garage:

DCIKEV: I popped into my local garage and he found the fault code free of charge on his reader, and was the cam sensor, have since used the information to change it myself. Cant really go back and ask to use theres again. Can you recommend a decent but not too expensive reader i can buy? found a few on ebay but prices range from 25 -150 quid, dont really want waste money buying an expensive one if a cheaper will do the same job ? Cheers
