    Crank sensor is on one of the cam belt pulleys- take the offside front wheel off and you should be able to locate it. Replacing the unit on my Mk2 Golf was a doddle. There should be a bracket holding a sensor that looks like this

    It'll be pointing at one of the pulleys, might be the bottom rear.

    Found this on the net might be helpful dude

    1. Fuel Injector
    2. Hall Sender (sometimes call CIS- Cylinder Indentifyer Sensor, or Cam Position Sensor)
    3. Throttle Body, contains throttle postision sender, idle switch + more
    4. Coilpack- sometimes called DIS or distributorless ignition system
    5. EGR Valve Actuator Solenoid, the actuall valve is underneath on the exhaust manifold
    6. Thermostat Housing
    7. Wiring Plug for Lambda Probe
    8. -Underneath Hose- Wiring plug for Knock sensor
    9. wiring plug for Speed Sender- sometimes called CAS or Crank Angle Sensor
    10. Coolant Temperature Sensor - or CTS
    11. Oil Pressure Switch
    12. Fuel Rail

    It's a pic of a lupo but the engines should be same / similar, i'm sure the crank sensor takes it readings from the fly wheel on the later vags so should be on the gearbox somewhere in the area on 9 on the pic, expect it to be a mother to get to
