BeetleJuice started stalling in traffic and idling badly. I ran a code check with Torque and came up with the code for the speed sensor / crankshaft position sensor. I'm almost due for an oil change anyway so I'm going to kill a few birds with one stone. Before I tackle the project, can anyone here who has already replaced the sensor give me a little mojo? Tips on how to make it easier, approaches, etc. would be helpful.

Thanks,
Chef

You are on the right track as it will be much easier to access the sensor with the oil filter removed.

The hardest part is getting the sensor out, there is only one bolt holding it in but after they have been in the engine for a few years they tend to stick.

The tip that has worked best for me is to rotate the sensor a little clockwise after the bolt is removed, this allows you to get a flat head screwdriver or other small prying tool under the tab for the bolt and work it out.

Hope this helps.
