Does anyone have pics of the exact location of the CPS for 05 C230 Kompressor? We looked on the driver's side rear near the firewall but could not locate it. More detailed description would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Tough to get a camera back in there to take a picture. Look for it where the flywheel would be as that's what's it's sensing. This would be where the engine meets the bell housing on the tranny at about the 2 o'clock position facing the engine from the front. It's deep in there, lots of stuff in the way.

This photo should help you understanding where the CPS is located. Please note that this photo is taken from the rear of the engine. Red arrow is pointing at the CPS.

CPS = Crankshaft Position Sensor (very famous part that doesn't allow the car to start when the CPS fails)

Don't confuse with "CAMshaft position sensor". That's a different sensor.

CPS removal help

Ok guys...We found the CPS. We removed the under pans. We moved the hydraulic lines out of the way. We removed the wiring plug from it and we can see the screw holding it in place but are having problem removing it. We tried using an E8 socket and the wiring for the started keeps getting in the way. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks again.
