Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Inspite of the engine not starting, if you get a code scanner connected up to it (borrow, buy or garage) -
Then the fault code will be able to read that is stored in the car.

Address that highlighted sector.

I'm not sure whether - If you have disconnected the battery, without attaching a secondary electrical source/gadget - That the code will still be stored.
Suspect not -
However as soon as you attempted to restart the engine - the codes should have been flagged up.

What is illuminated on the dashboard .
'Engine logo with centre STOP' or Engine logo only with a separate SERVICE?

If it is the TDC sensor - a relatively easy fit - assuming your hands are small! If not , then taking off the battery plus battery shelf will be required.

Currently in SamWoerth's garage:
1.6 Megane Saloon MkII 04 - previous MkI - wrote off- back ended
