Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Below are 2 files showing the CMP and CKP sensors.

Thanks for letting me help you & for leaving me a ~5 STAR EXCELLENT~rating when ready. Rating results in the website paying me from the question fee you have already paid. Although I appreciate customers saying "Thank You" that alone does not result in me being compensated if you were pleased.

Thanks Chris

I still can't find it. It shows how but not where?
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

Which one can you not find or both?

Both
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
They seem to be near
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

The CMP is in the end of the head next to the timing gears. You have the flex the belt away a little to get it out.

The CKP is behind the oil cooler.

Right side of engine? Or left? Front or behind. I'm not a mechanic
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

See if this view coupled with the others helps show the sensors better.

What happens if I don't change camshaft sensor is in a very complicated area
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Found camshaft but still can't find crankshaft and I took some parts already down are you sure of this info
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes I pretty sure. The manufacturers images and repair guides are rarely ever incorrect.

I do not know what concern your trying to resolve by replacing these sensors so I can not tell you what the result will be if you do not replace the sensors.

VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

I didn't get it resolved and you didn't sent me the right info
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

So do you still need help finding sensors?

I downloaded the VW images. Once you remove all the items needed to access both of these sensors then you will be able to see them both. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/1.8VW.pdf

That's not how the engine is set up. That's not the way the intake is. This has not been helpful at all
VW Mechanic: Chris(aka-Moose), VW Technician replied 1 year ago

Can you get me some pictures of your engine. I have sent diagrams from VW and both of my aftermarket repair sites and so far you say none match your engine.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
