I have a problem with my 2001 Fabia 1.4 8v MPI. The engine check light has come on and the VAG fault code reader is giving a 16725 P0341 Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit - Out of Range/Performance. The car runs OK and starts reasonably well. I have cleaned the contacts on the camshaft sensor, etc, but as soon as the engine turns over the code reappears on the fault reader.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it likely to be the camshaft sensor needing replaced? (I know that seems obvious, but I have been in the situation where changing a spark plug fixes an injector fault code, etc).
The car had it's timing chain changed at 97K by previous owner, (which I know if it is done wrongly can cause this), but the engine check light didn't come on until a few months later. Could it still be this? How can I check this without giving it to a mechanic?
Any experience, suggestions or informed reckonings welcomed,
