Renault Scenic - Various Starting Problems

hi
i have an intermittent problem with my scenic
sometimes it will start right away sometimes not
but engine spins.
think may be Top Dead Centre sensor but one post mentioned if
rev counter moves should not be Top Dead Centre sensor.
also if it is the Top Dead Centre sensor renault have modified my models
sensor and you also have to by a short wireing loom.
is this correct why should we have to pay for ther mods not fitting orginal wireing.
any help would be greatfully appreciated.
2002 scenic 1.6 16v 30000 miles
ps
also have two grey top coils and two black top coils
whats the difference between them

The TDC sensor can cause intermittent starting problems. If you remove it and give a good clean you may find a result. If you need to replace it you can cut the old plug off and fit to the new sensor.

bit of electrical cleaner and a rag, they are magnetic so can pick up a lot of metal particles

I have a similar problem with my '02 Scenic, except that when you try and start the car there is nothing. To get the car to start I have to roll the car while it's in gear and then it generally starts. I spoke to Renault and they reckoned I could have a dead spot on the starter motor or it could be the tdc sensor. Did you resolve your issue and if you did where can I find the tdc sensor in the engine bay to clean it ?
