Default 2000 S80 T6: Where are Cam Reset Valve and Cam Pos Sensor located?

I have a 2000 S80 Twin Turbo T6 2.8L that is throwing engine codes P0013 and P1332. There are no driveability issues, but the car will not pass inspection now.

From reading several threads, it looks like it could be the Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) or the Camshaft Reset Valve - also known as the CVVT Solenoid I believe.

Where exactly are these two components located? Does someone have photos of their locations?

Thanks for your help.

The camshaft reset valve or cvvt solenoid is underneath the top timing cover, easily accessible.
The camshaft position sensor is indicated in the diagram. From what I read briefly it looks like a faulty cvvt solenoid could throw both codes.

Thanks spunkymonkey.

So, from the diagram, if you're looking at the engine standing by the radiator, the camshaft position sensor looks like it is located on the top of the exhaust camshaft, pointing nearly straight up?

Regarding the cvvt solenoid, is it under the timing belt cover, or the long (3 foot) plastic cover that covers the entire top of the engine?

If it's that long black plastic cover, is it really readily accessible? Seems like there is a lot of turbo plumbing sitting right on top... Is that easily removable and reassembled?

Thanks for all your help.

Remove the turbo line over the engine and then remove the long plastic cover, as well as the timing belt cover on the left side. there are two clips, one each front and back on this cover to remove it. The CVVT solenoid is on the back left corner (when standing in front looking at the engine) of the top of the engine under the timing belt cover. The camshaft position sensor is on the right side near the back, just above the cam. Basically at the base of the engine torque mount (connects to the torque bar that goes across the engine bay).

Thanks for the info JTapper.

Is there anything special I need to know about removing all that turbo plumbing? The long plastic timing cover itself looks easy enough to remove, but the plumbing on top of the cover looks daunting. Is there any secret handshake involved for disassembling or reassembling the turbo lines?

Thanks

There's nothing special to them. They're not as bad as they look. Believe me once you've taken them on off a dozen times you'll be fine. You really can't do anything on the engine without removing them. So far I've been amazed at how simple most things are to do on this car. Knock on wood. Even though they might take a bit of time they really aren't as bad as working on a japanese car in my experience. The best thing I did was get a download of the VADIS manual. It has a huge amount of information in there.

Thanks again spunkymonkey.

I have to wait for some warmer weather some time next week before tackling this job, but I'll give the engine a look over.

I don't know if I want to remove the cover a dozen or more times to get good at it! Anyway, it's my daughter's car and my wife is on me to get it working so she can inspect it. Hopefully those turbo lines aren't as bad as I make them out to be.

Also, regarding the diagram, if you're looking at the engine standing by the radiator, the camshaft position sensor looks like it is located on the top of the exhaust camshaft, pointing nearly straight up? It looks very accessible from the diagram...

Just to clarify, the "turbo lines" we are talking about is the hard plastic tubing going from front to back across the top of the engine. You can get the cover off without removing it but it's a huge PITA.



P.S. Since I recently learned what PITA was, It's Pain In The A$$.
