I decided to try and replace it myself. Failed! It is not mounted like previous models. It is bolted behind part of the gearbox casing right behind the gear change. I managed to get the 2 10mm bolts out. But the sensor could not be lifted high enough to get it clear. In the end I had to just bolt the original one back in position. that was not easy either.
I'm hoping someone has found a way to get it out and fit a new one because it must be one of the hardest parts to change.
Being an Engineer, I really wonder what class of Engineers Car manufacturers use to design these cars. They have no idea of maintainability.
Mine is in the same location. I have a 2001 Renault Megane 1.6. Eventually got it out after about an hour. Was so dirty, gave it a good clean. Now getting it back is a lot harder. After 3 hours, no go. If I got it out, it's gotta go back in there. Eventually ran out of day light. Will try tomorrow again.
