Renault Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I am a fully qualified vehicle technician with over thirty years in the trade, hopefully I can help.
The camshaft sensor is to the left of the engine and is located down between the upper engine mount and the camshaft cover, it has three wires on the plug.
It is very fiddly, I have attached a couple of images to help you find it.
I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread
Do you have the registration number I will check for you.
Thank you for that, give me two minutes I will get the details up.
Right I have the picture from the manual.

No that's definitely the cam sensor, I have a ttached a slightly further back shot with the writing.
No, I hope all goes well and that cures the problem.
Hopefully that sensor will fix it then, if not the crankshaft sensor can cause problems and I would check that.
OK, let me know how it goes, and if you need any further details just ask
