Scenic TDC Sensor removal


Can anyone help? I have tried to replace the sensor on my 2001 1.6 RXE auto. I can undo the bolts, but cannot wiggle the sensor out from under the thermostat housing. There must be a knack to it that I haven't discovered. Very frustrating! I don't want to have to take off the thermostat as well.

I managed to give the contact a good rub with my finger that cleaned it a bit, so the starting has improved, but I'm sure it would be better taking it off and doing a proper job. Incidentally, it is the sensor that has the captive nuts on it.

Thanks in anticipation
