07 TDI V10 - Camshaft position sensor

Im getting a 12295 DTC (Camshaft position sensor - G40, No signal). I've bought the replace part.

Anybody know where it goes?

I goes on the back of the R/H bank cylinder head, underneath the Tandem Pump. I'll see if I can find a picture of the location for you...

You might inspect the harness that hangs down from the sensor to the top of the tranny. This involvesv lying on top of the engine using a mirror or better, a camera. Mine was severed by a rodent and I could see it hanging loose. I spliced the plug into the main harness on the firewall rather than pull the engine.
