Location of camshaft position sensor on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra wL

Can anyone please tell me the location of the camshaft position sensor on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra with a 2.0 L engine?
I recently changed the timing belt and now the check engine light is on with code of P 0340 indicicating a problem with the camshaft position sensor. The engine seems to start and run fine. I was very careful with getting the timing correct with the belt installation and I assume it is correct since the engine does start and rune fine.
Thanks for your assistance.

I have 2006 hyundai elantra with a bad camshaft sensor. I have part on hand. Anything special I need to do besides swap out the part? Cam Shaft Location?

I assume you determined the diagnostic trouble code for the sensor was TRUE/VALIDATED?
If so, then there is NO reason to do anything else but 'swap out the part.' Your second question is somewhat puzzling... the cam shaft is on TOP of the engine - the sensor's location (standing on the passenger side of the vehicle with the hood open, is on the left side of the engine at approximately the 10 o'clock position of the cam.... the connector to it is at the 9 o'clock position.
