    try looking next to the crank pulley or front of engine near breather pipe at the bottom facing towards the gearbox. If not in either it could be round the back just above the right driveshaft into the gearbox

    assuming you mean a zlet/lel/ler/leh - if so then its under the cam cover strip but you need to remove the pulley cover to remove it

    the crankshaft sensor is if you look facing the engine, down to the left hand side of the turbo quite low down. the three wires that run across the top of the cam cover and down the left hand side of the engine point towards where it is! if i remember right its held in with a t8 bolt which is visible if you look down to the left of the turbo. the connection end is under where the afm is situated. i know because mine decided to let go a while ago. £29 i gave for a new one! hope this is of help!
