Re: TDC Sensor Replacement (with pictures!)

Just a quick note to add my thanks. I'm not terribly practical, but even I managed to extract and clean the TDC sensor on my X-reg 1.6 megane. Only took about 15 minutes.

Starting has been getting harder for a while now, but then it wouldn't fire at all since a few days ago. (I've never had the other reported symptom of cutting out while idling.) Fortunately, I don't rely on my car day-to-day, so could take a little time to research, and found this site. Couldn't believe that a quick spray with WD40 and a wipe to remove some iron filings would bring my car back to life. Thanks to all.

(Other half is probably not so pleased - she was probably hoping this would be the last straw and that I'd finally agree to buying something a bit newer !)
