Help! Camshaft (hall) position sensor problem
While trying to replace a vacuum hose, I accidentally broke the wire clip off my camshaft position sensor on the back of the cam. I was vaguely informed that if you replace this sensor, you need to realign the timing belt and such.
Does anyone know if I just reconnect the wiring harness to the existing sensor and expect it to work? I've turned the engine over several times, but it (obviously) hasn't started with the sensor disconnected. I haven't yet touched the sensor itself, just severed the wires leading to it (ack.)
Since the wires are so short and tiny and the sensor is so difficult to reach, I haven't yet been able to reconnect it as an experiment. and it's not worth the trouble if I have to realign the sensor anyway, I'd just replace it instead.
Thanks so much in advance --
