CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR - TDCI 125PS

Postby Fwd125tdci » Sat Jul 12, 2008 8:15 pm

Hi there again all, driving along a couple of days ago and the van cut out on a roundabout with glow plug light flashing and then would not start for a few minutes, thought it might be a one off, but it has done it twice again, last night got my mate to plug it into his bosch diagnostics and it has thrown up a CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR error, have looked for it but dont know where it is, can anyone help?? it is a 52 reg 125 tdci fwd. Any help appreciated in identifying the location, hard/easy to change and what i need to remove to get to it.
