there is no wires in that region behind block to the right looking from front of car. it is a 2.5 sport model is that any different than a 2.5

Dear customer, if i stand in front of the vehicle, it will be to the right hand.
did you watch the video? and Sorry for my insistence with it.

to make sure, could you send me a picture of your engine? I am showing you the 2005 Xtrail 2.5 petrol.

you can attach the picture in the top of the chat. In the clip.

i have already seen those videos but they are not very clear it is 2.5 sport engine. i can tell you there is no wires where video shows. are you sure this is correct location for 2.5 sport engine thanks

Yes dear customer, I am completely sure. This engine doesn't change. But I would appreciate a picture in these moment.
What happens with this sensor is that it cannot be watch it a simple view. It is easier to touch it than watch it, because of the hard access to it.

think i will take into garage thought it would be easy asking for £13 but not so thanks
