Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Hey all want to add my 10pence worth.

My partner has a 2002 megane sport 1.6 and displayed all the symptoms described here.

She tried to start it last night but would not fire up. Engine turns nicely but it was as though no fuel was getting through. She could turn it 4 times or 10 times and nothing. She once just left it for a day and it started but was quickly back to square one. Very intermittent!

Anyway i did as suggested and cleaned the TDC it was filthy with tiny metal filings. Cleaned it with white spirits and put it back in. Turned the key and started perfectly!

It was a little awkward to get to, air filter had to be removed to get to it. about 40 mins in total.

Thanks to OP.
