How do you change the TDC sensor on the Renault Scenic RX4
here is pictures and advice on how to replace it :) http://www.renaultforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=10062
The coolant temperature sensor in a Renault Megane Scenic is located on the right hand side of the engine as you are looking at it. It is located just above the TDC sensor.
where is the tdc sensor on a 2003 scenic 1.6
Tdc sensor is located lower front of gearbox on Renault laguna diesel engine 2001 onward.

You have to remove the battery to take it out and see it better, one the battery is out you will see two small bolts that hold the sensor in pace over the crankshaft. Peter
at the back
In K9K engine series: If you mean the tdc in order to lock crankshaft to replace timing belt, in front of the engine near the flywheel zone right below the oil pressure valve there is a small bolt (usually with a torx head "star"). Removing that bolt and inserting a special locking tool through that hole ,will lock crankshaft right on the tdc. No he means the TDC Sensor which is on top of the bell housing it is held in place on a banana shaped plate which is bolted to the engine with 2 10mm bolts.
what are the symptoms of bad tdc o2 sensor
Had same problem on mine, took the TDC (Top Dead Centre) sensor off, cleaned it and has been fine since. there are some good photos on how to do this if you google it. Good luck Rich
It sends information to your ECM computer to inform cylinder one when to spark and to get the fuel mixture correct.
Tdc sensor is the top dead center sensor ( cam position sensor) , causes the car to enter in "limp mode". Very annoying
Here is a pic of it...You have to have it to replace the crank sensor on the newer Foeds...Jim
were is the tdc problem
where is the tdc in my 98 civic ex sedan
tdc = top dead center? its the position of the first piston.
When this happened to me on my seven year old 2.2 DCi laguna I had to hae taken in to the Renault dealers. It turned out to be the a problem with both the cam sensor and the fuel injection sensor. Both had to be replaced at a cost 0f £300 in all. It did cure it though! May also be TDC / crank sensor. Worth removing it and giving it a clean.

TDC Sensor (Top Dead Center)defective circuit or unplugged / defective sensor
I had same problem for nearly a year then looked on internet and the TDC sensor came up on lots of forums. There is a diagram also on parkerforums where this sensor is. All you need to do is clean it with a wire brush and car will run fine for approx 6 months. I have done this now for the last 18 months and every 6 months or so have to just clean the sensor at no cost. Hope this helps.
an awful lot of Renault drivers suffer poor starting and a simple replacement of TDC or flywheel sensor solves it - might be carbon related - costs fifty quid or so plus a little labour in most places and main dealers don't seem to know about this common problem The reason is because the steel tip of the TDC sensor which picks up a signal from the flywheel telling the ECU when to fire the spark plugs gets dirty after a year or two and cannot get the signal. There is no need to pay up to ££90 for a new one at a Renault garage just simply remove it and clean the tip! also clean the connector.
ignition switch The TDC Sensor is probably dirty, remove it and give the tip a clean, also the connecter.
On most D-series motors such as the 1.6L D16a1 and D16Z6, or the 1.5L D16b7 ect. the TDC sensor is in the Distributor and will probably need to be replaced as a unit.
could be a starter problem. i replaced mine (1996 RT) a few times. its just the way the car is built. Most likely cause is a dirty TDC sensor, clean it.
