TDC sensor does the same thing as a crank shaft sensor.

I can't really tell from the photos so not sure if the cam shaft sensor is in the same place as on the 1.9Dci engine?

Changed the cam shaft sensor recently on a mates Laguna 1.9Dci and I removed the rear engine lifting eye to make access easier

I think you're looking for the Camshaft Sensor.;)

It works off of the fuel pump pulley (oddly enough),I can't for the life of me remember how to remove the cambelt covers or access the sensor though.I changed a belt on one not so long ago but my memory isn't what it used to be.:eek:

Remove the part of the engine mount on the engine. Have a jack below the sump with a bit of wood to spread the load. Sensor is held by one bolt (10mm wrench) if you still have difficulty of access jack the engine up a bit, carefully.
