Asking members on the forum ,, I am doing this for a friend whos crank possition sensor was faulty
Taken in for replacment at a Mercedes ind garage that bodged it all up , and making a bigger job than what it was. Chaps stuck now ,,with the prospects of gearbox removal to get the broken bodged up sensor out. They want him to give them the job of removing the box to extract broken sensor .Talking maga bucks to pull the box . Would anyone know if it can be done without gearbox removal if so how. Now the room to get in there is very limited to work on it . This is not the usuall removal job ,those who have had this problem will know whats involved ... Anyone had problems with this plastic sensor ?. Thanks for looking in.

Line up the TDC air gap on the flex plate with the sensor
and punch it through into the bell housing and fish it out from the bottom.

Not sure with that specific car but in general a self tapping screw down the remains of the sensor gives something to pull on.

name n shame the indy in question , poor show if they cant change something that simple without cocking it up

That is a little unfair knowing some of these sensors can be a devil to remove. The CPS is already in an awkward place and the indy wasn't to know the sensor would be stuck fast.
Is this the same car as the story on the "other side"?

As above, these can be a real pain to remove, how many times does a "simple" job turn into a drama through no fault of anybody. Having said that, you should be able to remove remains without removing gearbox.
