147 2.0 TS: Crank Sensor - From the Top?
Drove 850 trouble free miles over the weekend in the 147, no problems whatsoever (apart from knackered gear linkages and a stiff 4th gear). Averaged 38 mpg, really happy so far...
Car wouldn't start the morning after, cranking over, battery fine, fuel pump working, fuel in car. Got a diagnostic tool on it and I get the dreaded P0335 Crank Sensor code. Thought this fault would be intermittent, but its just gone.
Car is parked on a hill, I can't move it, and I won't be able to get underneath it.
Anyone had any real world experience of getting in from the top? Is it actually possible without double jointed wrists or a highly skilled ferret mechanic? I've read various posts about removing the throttle body, battery and air intake. I've got to get them out of the way to do the gear linkages anyway.
Should I do the knock sensor while I'm in there? I'm getting pinking under load also, but no fault code is being generated.
