2000 Passat Crankshaft sensor

Hi I was wondering if anyone had any videos or step by step instructions with pictures on how to locate and replace the crankshaft position sensor in my car. I already have the part, but I need help locating where the sensor is. I don't want to send it to the dealer unless I absolutely need to because they quoted me almost $400 just in labor to replace the part using the sensor that I already purchased. Any help would be great and thanks in advance!

Hi, usually the crank sensor is by the crank pulley, although I have scene them in all kinds of locations. Sometimes transmission bellhousings etc.

Have you thought about maybe getting a Alldata/Mitchell subscription?

They usually have good information and instructions for replacing stuff.

You could also, always get a shop manual.
