    Crankshaft Sensor problem

    I did a paperclip test last week and got quite a few fault codes. I've replaced ALL of the parts that the fault codes referred to (Mass airflow meter, Throttle position sensor and Crankshaft sensor) . I then disconnected the battery for 30 mins to clear the faults from the ecu, just to be told that my crakshaft sensor was STILL faulty even though I replaced it with a brand new part!
    Any suggestions?

    check the pick up wheel on the crank pulley and ensure it is clean and not distorted, also the mounting point of the crank sensor should be checked for dirt etc. Failing that it could be another faulty sensor, it's not unknown especially if it is a cheaper type pattern one

    How do I get to the pick up wheel on the crank pulley? I'm by no means a mechanic, but would prefer to finish the job myself without having to pay for assistance. I've already spent enough on replacement parts.
