Since the room for play is very little the position of the sensor when being removed and reinserted is very important. For me - it was with the the washers side up - that is when removing it I tried to lift the sensor and rotate it counter-clockwise so that the magnet that was facing the flying wheel was now facing the battery side - and then slide it away from me to the firewall side. Same route for reinserting it.
I've had the same difficulty and took photos of this different mounting bracket on my Scenic 1.6auto Nov 2000. But I can't get them to upload here. I'm waiting for a response from the administrators.
Currently in erniefoster's garage:
Scenic 1.6 auto; Clio 1.4 auto
