The only lugs holding it are on the unit but were below opening and just bend in when you pull the sensor out.
thanks for the reply.

i finally got the sensor out in the end, a big screwdriver and a very swift whack with a hammer! was a last resort but it worked
fitted the new effect so i pulled it out - very easily i might add. but i found a break in the wire that had been hidden but someone had tried to solder it before and made a very bad job of it so i cut the bad section out and crimped it back together with a new piece of wire but still nothing. whats the chances of a new sensor thats duff?

i checked between terminals before ordering the sensor during the week to make sure there was power and an earth to the sensor but i didnt check the signal wire so i will need to trace this back to the ecu ? and see if i have continuity, im hoping its just a bad wire so i can replace it if need be and thats it end of but who knows.

does anyone know if its possible to do a self check thing on the dials? my clio used to do it but i had to hold the computer button on the end of the stalk which this clio doesnt have...
