okay decided with funds being tight and me using the car alot more often im gonna change my cam position sensor as its giving me a bit of jip however i went to remove it following this guide on another site http://www.vauxhallownersnetwork.co....XEV-2.0-Vectra
If you skip straight to step 28 which is where i got to it says the sensor should pull freely from the top of the engine but mine will not pull freely. It looks like i would need to remove all the belts and cogs covering the sensor, is this the case with this engine or am i being a moron and it should actually pull freely out. Also this is probably a very stupid question but im gonna ask anyway as you never know, obviously i could get the old one out by cutting a piece of it off however would the new one still function properly if i cut a small piece off to allow it to go into the top of the engine?
Exact moodel is a 99(V) astra sri 2.0 3 door
Thanks as always guys
