Default 1600 vti sport alternator fit

Im replacing my alternator and to get the old alternator out of the engine bay i had to dismantle it.I now have the problem of getting the new alternator into the engine bay.I could just sqeeze it in if the sensor next to the top of the dipstick was not there.How do i remove it and what sensor is it please.

not sure where your looking at, this is the exhaust camshaft dephaser held in by one bolt.

It's an electrovalve that controls oil flow into the exhaust camshaft dephaser unit. Held in place by a single bolt immediately underneath it.

Unplug the connector, remove the bolt and gently pull the electrovalve out of the head. Be prepared for a bit of oil to dribble out!

Careful not to damage the o-ring on the electrovalve when you put it back in.

loosen the mount and raise the engine a little then you can wiggle the alternator out

even a new belt goes on easy with the arm lifted so you have something wrong, if you're having trouble getting it on the crank pulley you need to pull the 'tape' on the water pump drive pulley, this will lift it up and out the way.
