    Hi, did my crank sensor DIY! Not too hard really.

    Move the coolant expansion tank, didnt drain it...

    Its one of these plugs under the tank but cant remember which one! Will be obvious with a new sensor in your hand...

    Then just follow the wire down to the bottom of the block till you find this! One bolt and a pair of moleys too extract it!
