SOURCE: location of knock sensor
Knock sensors can be difficult to locate because there usually buried under intake or exhaust manifolds and misc. engine wiring and plumbing. Knock sensors need to hear an engine knocking noise, therefore there usually located somewhere they can hear an engine knock. If it's a V6 then possibly it will be between the cylinder heads and access to them can only be attained by removing the intake manifold. I would suggest calling a Nissan Dealer parts person and ask them. Good luck.

It is located on the engine block itself in the valley between the cylinder heads. The entire intake manifold has to come off to access it:

Testimonial: "I am well satisfied with the quick response and information. Chuck"
V6 3.3L The sensor is located underneath the air intake manifold on top
of the engine block. This should take an experienced mechanic about 3-4
hours to replace.

Its located behind the air intake, by the firewall. It looks like a doughnut with rubber on it, and a wire coming out of the side. Its held down by a bolt. Its just in a hard place to get to. If you remove the bolt first, its easier to pull up by the wire. disconnect the wire, and throw away, connect the new one, and bolt the new one in. ONLY use 20lbs. torque to tighten it down. It will break if not careful(found out the hard way). Its about a 10 minute job
