Followed the advice above, cleaned the TDC sensor and it now runs perfectly - smoother than it has been for ages.

It really, really is as simple as described (a pain to reach in the Megane, but worth persevering). I just cleaned the sensor with a tissue and a finger nail. If I had to do it again I wouldn't even bother unclipping the electrical connector.

Thanks again,

It is worth disconnecting as rather than the TDC being dirty it could be the connecter that is slightly corroded causing the problem so just clean that aswell.

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !
