    Change cam and crank at the same time as it is very common for the new cam or crank to blow the other.

    As Simon1.

    Easy, but access is a tad restricted. Use thread locking compound on the 2 bolts when refitting the sensor. Access can be imroved by removing the airbox. Not sure about a sensor change 'blowing' another sensor.....

    How does he know it is the cam sensor that needs changing?
