    Default Renault Scenic Crank angle sensor, where?

    Hi ,

    trying to find the crank angle sensor on our Scenic 2.0 .
    Can some one help where is it located ?
    Towards the back near the starter ?
    Can't see it for all the pipes.

    Car slow to start sometimes and wondering if it is the problem?

    Otherwise the Scenic is good .

    Found it after we pulled the air cleaner stuff away.
    Dad has a new Sensor in a draw, he says.

    The sensor is just above the flywheel and is difficult to see particularly if you have an automatic with the extra coolant hoses.
    You might be able to get away with just a clean of the existing sensor. They get a buildup of gunk on the tip of the sensor and this could give poor readings. There was a change to the wiring during the intervening years and depending on when the sensor was last changed you might have to cut off the old plug and splice in the new wires.
