Variocam valve sensor

Question

I have a '94 968 coupe. The car only has 48k miles but the valve sensor in the VarioCam needs to be replaced. I dont know how much this should cost. I'm afraid that the local shop is charging me way to much, $1,800us installed. If you have time, write me back if you have any input on what I should do, or if there is a possible aftermarket alternative to my problem.
Thanks alot,

 

Answer

If it is the sensor that is connected to the flywheel which supplies the signal to the solenoid, then the price would be approximately £88 from Strasse, Leeds, UK. 0113 2340911. Fitting would be approximately an hours labour. From the difference in the pricing it may be that you mean the solenoid which would be significantly more and probably about the price you where quoted.
