I know we have threads on this but I wondered if anyone here has had the sensor replaced off the gearbox that powers the speedo? I was looking for a ball park figure on what the cost might be including labour?
On a Cup it is down that back of the engine next to the exhaust manifold (no idea if a FF 172 is different). It is surrounded by a heat shield. You do not need to remove the airbox as someone said above. Just call up your local dealer and give them the reg and they'll get the right one.
Also, its not quite as easy as some are making out. Getting it out of the gearox is easy, getting it off the loom is a b**ch.
I replace mine, i bought sensor for £14 of eGay, the pattern part doesnt seem to fit as well it didnt really "click" into place, however it functions perfectly as you would expect it to. Would probably opt for a genuine sensor next time.
