Eccentric shaft sensor

Hi guys:

After mechanical check, the dealer told me I need change a new eccentric shaft sensor. I do not know what it is. My car model is 2007 X3 3.0SI. I am not sure it will have a negative effect on car's safety and reliability. Approximate costs would help as well. Thanks.

Rui

some good links

watch this to see location etc ....check to see if yours has leaked oil into sensor ....it will mess up timing signals etc......if it's bad then get ready with gaskets and sensor as in DIY at end of this post......you can maybe poboy with a sensor cleaning by pulling off connector plug but you will be dancing with the devil depending on how much leakage you have



here's a link to a new sensor......its generic ....so input your last seven of VIN into Real OEM .com and get your exact parts.....google part numbers for sensor/gaskets etc into search engine and price info etc should pop up
