A good idea Tubestock but there may be a danger of upsetting the wave pattern to the ECU .

A Renault tech I know claims that 80% of TDC faults are down to poor connections and not a fault in the sensor itself. He usually cleans the sensor and then solders the connections covering the joints with heat-shrink insulation. Many people seem to think cleaning the sensor helps but actually in many cases the process of disconnecting and reconnecting the connector cleans the contact surfaces of the connectors.
