    Thread: Audi A3 Crank Position Sensor Location?

    1. 09-11-2012 10:51 AM #1
      Hey!
      I don't know if I have put this in the right forum thread or not, but here goes.
      My Crank position sensor has pretty much burnt out and requires a new one. I've purchased a new one, finally!
      Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where it is located?

      Thanks!

      Hmmm obviously not a US production car. Possible that is one of the motors that uses a crank wheel in the rear main seal but I don't know for sure as I have no info on that motor. Sorry

      Wouldn't the shape of said sensor help a person figure out where it could fit? And a decent manual would be a great amount of help to anyone wanting to work on their own vehicle.
      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.
