Clutch position sensor

On a trip away down country with my 2005 duoselect .
Had travelled over 200 km without missing a beat that morning.
Decided to top up with fuel in a country town called Te Kuiti
Pulled in the bowser and undid fuel cap jumped out and realise the bowser was out of order
Jumped back in the move car to next lane.
Car started and then thre malfunction error re transmission....strange
Waited a moment and then tried to start turned over but no start.
Waited a minute turned over and started fine so moved to next lane.
Now I was wondering if it would start again.
Filed up and started all fine drove off went to Ed the hill and malfunction error limp mode reduced to 2nd gear
Stopped disconnect battery and wait...start and drive back over the hill to local garage.
Car stalls just as I drive into the service area and wonít start.
Very helpful technician plugs in snap on analyser and picks up clutch position sensor fault.
Clears the fault and we wait a few minutes with bat dis connected
Car starts and runs fine around the block...everything back to fault.
Drive back to garage...just driving into yard and car stalls and wonít start with same error msg.
CR now on Truck back to home me in rental carrying on with my trip.
So cars done 70,000 kms...donít think itís had a clutch.
I am careful with the clutch uptakes.
Me thinks time for new clutch....and or could I just replace the sensor.
I caught a few comments about access via removed started motor to enable swap out of sensor.
I have looked at the photos...seems to be pretty fiddle if at all possible.
Has anyone done this successfully?
I d be keen to know.
Overall I might need to replace clutch etc anyway .
I have replaced the engine mounts recently and done the rocker cover gaskets so not adverse to getting under the car for more fun.
Also have a contact who is a mobile Ferrari Maserati technician with correct software interface to set clutch up.

That is a long post with a lot of details! You can't correctly replace a F1 sensor without removing the bellhousing..The wiring harness is attached inside the bellhousing...Some of the bellhousings also don't really give good access to the sensor as well...Sorry...Jason
