Same with me, it's a bit fiddly getting the TDC off but just clean the magnetic tip until it's shiny, mine has been OK for 3 years now with just the clean.

Currently in davesss's garage:
2002 Laguna Sports Tourer 1.8 Dynamique Moondust VF1KGOB, Fiat Siecento Micheal Schumaker, Kawasaki KLE M/Cycle and a cheap Mountain Bike.
