Well the basic and most simple way to describe your answer which is very basic as well, is 1st disconnect your Neg battery cable from the battery then disconnect the pigtail from the sensor and then remove the sensor replace it with the new sensor and install is reverse of the removal. Of course depending on what sensor your replacing the job will be either easy or difficult depending on its location and access.
