Your TDC sensor will be located on the right hand side of the engine just above the gearbox bellhousing. It will look like a boomerang shaped bit of metal with a electrical connection going it and two 10mm bolts holding it on.

See the below link. The pics show a megane engine, but the principle and the location of the TDC sensor are the same :-

TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Undo the bolts and clean the surfaces of metal filings. It needs to be shiny too, so it may need rubbing with sandpaper a bit.

A new one isnt much from Renault, probs 30. Try cleaning it first though.
