Top right of engine looking from front.
Just to the side of the sparkplug on cylinder no 1 (French) furthest from auxiliary belt.
I think its a 10mm bolt and you are able to get it out with some manipulation of spanner.
Remove the coil first to make access easier.

Out of curiosity why do you need to change it?

Any symptoms?

Hi there 2 fault codes came up ,

P2002 & p0340

The soot filter is driving me nuts , the " regenerate the soot filter " is on and off more than I drive the car lol.

P0340 came up for the Camshaft sensor , so I purchased a new one

Ah a diesel.
Do you motorway much?

Maybe it needs a good burn out at constant high speed for a while.

With regard to the cam sensor, if you got one already then change it but don't throw the old one because its probably only dirty.

Let us know.

Thank you ever so much for the advice , I don't do a lot of motorway driving , so I am thinking or having the engine and system Terra cleaned to see if that will help :)
