How to change a G40 Cam position sensor - 10 minute job
If you have a code for your PD cam position sensor,
this how-to will show you how to fix it.
My car was giving code:
1 Fault Found:
19463-Camshaft Position Sensor (G40)
Torque: 78.0 Nm
Speed: 83.0 Km/h
Voltage: 14.35 V
Bin. Bits: 00001000
Idle Stab.: 0.0 KW
(no units): 48.0
I cleaned the adapter plug but it still persisted after clearing the code.
After doing some searching I couldn't find a "how-to" so here's mine.
-Long Flat blade screwdriver to pop the grommet loose
-10mm socket and extensions
-rag or paper towel
Highly Recommended: magnetic pickup tool
Uplug the sensor wire
Use long screwdriver to remove grommet
Tip: Stuff a rag or paper towel around the timing belt to prevent the 10mm bolt from falling down into the abyss.
Remove 10mm bolt to release sensor
Pull sensor towards the fender, it must be removed from that direction and the new one must be installed the same way
