Tip & How-To about Oldsmobile Alero
How i did it was removed the bolts on the altenator and moved it aside, then unclipped the cruise controller from the bracket by the front motor mount. Then with my 1/4 inch drive 1/2 socket removed the power steering bolts through the power steering pump pully and moved it to the side and then pulled out the 8mm bolt that holds the sensor in and wholla the sensor pulls out push the new one in and put everything back together.
