CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE

DESCRIPTION:

When replacing the Crankshaft Position Sensor on a 1996 to 1999 Accent, Elantra or Tiburon, it is important to note differences in the construction of the original sensor and the replacement sensor.

COMPARISON OF CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR HOUSING (39180-22050)

The sensor construction was modified in 1997. The sensor's housing material was changed from a metallic design to a plastic design (as can be seen in the picture).

NOTE: It is very important, when replacing an old style sensor with a new style sensor, that the O-Ring and the plastic washer be removed from the sensor mounting hole before the new sensor is installed.

If the O-Ring and/or the plastic washer is not removed from the sensor mounting hole, the new sensor will not fit properly

Thanks for the info. But I need to know exactly where to look to find it - in laymans terms please. Not sure what a fly wheel is and the diagrams don't show my anything that I can recognise. Could you please describe it to me if you don't have photos/diagrams please. I think I have an idea but don't want to do anything that will stuff my engine completely!! Do I need to remove anything to get access to the area?
Expert:  Jerry replied 5 years ago.
The flywheel is at the back of the engine, (at the trans) and the crankshaft position sensor is toward the bottom. The sohc and dohc have them in the same place. The only picture I found was the sohc. You can see the crank sensor at the far right, (lower) with the wire coming off of it.

There is nothing that has to come off to get to it. The labor time is 0.4 hours (24 minutes) and it is held in with one small bolt. If you have the new one, just find the thing that looks just like it, (?)
