    Hi guys,
    Looking at changing crankskaft position sensor this weekend, and looking for guidance on how i.e. step by step. Have seen the sensor on the OEM diagram, but can't see it on the car!
    Can anyone direct me in the right direction?

    Crank position sensor location on a 330 is the same as 318 on the block. It is a little easier to get to on your car as well.

    beg your pardon, you are indeed correct. Tha crankshaft sensor is obviously under the starter motor
