Hi

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

Many Thanks

Hi

Right I have the picture from the manual.

The instruction say to remove the engine cover,

The sensor sits in the middle of the top cam cover.

Sorry for the poor picture the Renault manual won't let me screen shot.

The bolt need a nr 6 key and when I took out the sensor was fool of oil. Usually I know it not supposed to be so dirty.

Hi

No, I hope all goes well and that cures the problem.

The engine is not starting from the first time and I've been checked everything. And all looks fisor because on the tested it was saying "no signal" from this sensor.

Hi

Hopefully that sensor will fix it then, if not the crankshaft sensor can cause problems and I would check that.

Steve

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I want to check again that crankshaft sensor marked by you in the pictures

OK, let me know how it goes, and if you need any further details just ask

The code on it is 04112 and in the 2nd row 1802B

Hi

What code reader is that? Do you have a P code

Steve

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry. This code is written on the sensors

I've cleaned the sensor and put it back in place but still doing the same .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'll try to measure the sensor then I'll see what s going on.

Hi

Yes cleaning the sensor will rarely work, if the sensor is faulty its the internal windings that fail and a new sensor is normally needed.
