how do get to the crank sensor on a bmw 316 tise 03 compact
Hi, the crank sensor is located on the left side of the engine block under the intake manifold. You would have to access it from under the car.
This type of job would mostly need to be done by feel, since there is no room to see clearly in the area.
The sensor is held on with only 1 4mm or 5mm allen head screw. So if you reach up into that area from below, with the engine cold. Unplug the sensor, remove screw. and pull sensor out. Make sure the sealing o-ring comes out with the sensor, or reach back in to get the o-ring if it's stuck in the hole.

The sensor is #3 in the image below.
