CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE
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
