A Google says:

The crank position sensor is located at the back of the engine block just below the cylinder head. It actually projects into the bell housing and reads the teeth on the flywheel where it references TDC for #1 cyl and RPM's of the crank.

I've never been able to find it on Servicebox, I don't know what name Peugeot are using for the par.

sensor

Hi

Its not like the 110hp hdi in the bell housing, its at the back of the crankshaft pulley, so you would have to take the tray off to get at it. Well I have only seen it when I did the clutch Thinking I needed to remove it from the bell housing but its not to be seen, so must be the one at pulley.

Thanks vpug

It's a couple of years ago, but I seem to remember it has a plug and one torx bolt.

On later 2 litre hdi engines the crank sensor is not in the bellhousing it is on the crankshaft bottom pulley at its rear edge and you get at it from underneath OR through drivers side wheelarch after removing liner.

Hi, good discussion. I had sensor problems with my Peugeot 407 2.0 hdi 100kW, loss of power and sometimes engine shutdown while driving. II read P0337 and P0339 codes via ODB2 and it seems to be related to crankshaft. I want to replace it by myself (thanks to this discussion I guess I will be able to locate the crankshaft sensor). I have two questions: first, once replaced with a new one, is there anything to do to configure the sensor, or its configuration is automatically made by ECU? Second, my garage already replaced crankshaft and camshaft sensor in september 2019, have you experienced a similar fast break of these sensors? thank you
