The TDC sensor is bolted to the side of the engine just above where the gearbox joins it. It will probably be obscured from view by a coolant hose, but you can get to it.

Its a a curved peice of metal with a bolt at either end and an electrical connector going to it. What you want to do is get rid of all the little metal filings that is on the sensor.
