Assuming it's the same as the 1.6 then it's behind the crank pulley, at about 7 o'clock when viewed end on.

Seems that it is, pic from a timing belt video:

Ok thanks but I was lead to believe that the position sensor was on the flywheel Bell housing but the starting motor but can not see it

If it's the 1.4 HDi 70 then there is a camshaft position sensor:

... and a crankshaft position sensor (engine speed), which is the one you are probably referring to:

The cam sensor is located at the top of the engine pointing at the cam pulley, the crank sensor location is shown in the picture already posted.

What code have you actually got? Where did the sensor come from?
