Stick a hand up/down and see if you can get a grip on it.
Will likely depend if the starter motor is above or below it.

On the 1.9JTD it is below the starter motor.. so I stuck my hand up (car on stands), it was a 5minute job after I worked out how to get sufficient leverage on the Allen key (use a good one, long)

Thanks all,
Have been waiting for our new shed to be finished before I start on this so that I have a nice, dry workplace and a level surface for stands/ramps.
Am about to order new crank angle sensor but (harping on my old question) if I choose to try replacing from below, will it be easier if I first remove the engine undertray to allow for more room/light for the job?
