Camshaft Sensor issue Hyundai Elantra 2004

The radiator broke and was replaced. After that the "check engine" indicator turned on. I went to a mechanic and the scanner showed that the camshaft sensor was the problem. It was replaced and now the "check engine" indicator turns on some days and then turns off. I took the car again to the mechanic and the scaaner throws again the camshaft code. Could it be a deffective replacement? I bought a generic part.

It is possible that the camshaft sensor is intermittently failing. But also check the actual wire connector to the sensor. If the connector is making contact at times, then your computer would read it at times.

Hyundai Elantra camshaft position sensor...

You want to make sure it does not fully slip into the engine first off. I am unsure if it can be reached from the inside but the answer to that is likely no. I would use a sharp drill bit, make a hole, inset an easy our ot screw and use that to remove the broken peice. Hope this helps.
