Hi there guys,I need some help as soon as possible. My passenger side Froont Welsh plug was weeping. Today i decieded to replace that, I went and bought one from Supercheap auto and now em in middle of removing the old welsh plug. The problem is I cant access it properly due to the fact that there is a Black thing that says "Caution - NOT ADJUSTABLE", how to remove that thing and what is it for ?. Any help will be highly appreciated, The car is in the driveway and not driveable coz i punched a hole by mistake in the welsh plug,cheers.

Is this an EF?

The black thing is the replacement for the distributor. Can't remember the name. It is removable, but I'd wait to see what somebody with more experience says.

Yeah thats the cam angle sensor....

You will need a Gregorys workshop manual to tell you the process of installing it after taking it out.

Cheers

If your having trouble taking it out, you should be able to use a flat head screwdriver to lever it out gently.

To install it back again, you will need to set your engine to top dead centre and place a drill bit in the cam angle sensor to hold it in the right position.

Im not sure of the best way of tackling this but you will get all the info you need in a workshop manual.

Cheers

Part of it that goes into the engine shouldn't be sensitive. I would be careful with plastic top. But its up to you if you feel confident enough to remove it.

Do you have a workshop manual?

Nah mate I dont have workshop manual :( coz most of the work I learnt from me old man, as he was a mechanical engineer [May his soul R.I.P], and never bothered bout the service manual. Thanx for ur help guys, the welsh plug is out from the car without removing the crank angle sensor and without breaking anything.I'll post the picture of the removed welsh plug when i finish the work,cheers.
