The cam sensor is mounted in top of the engine on the right side of the engine where the tranny mounts. You have to remove the top cover of the engine to get to it. Remove the electrical connector from the sensor, there is a clip that holds the connector in place. Push down on the back of it and then pull back at the same time. Pull on the connector and not the wires, they are very small and will break. Remove the bolt holding the sensor. To remove the sensor by twisting and pull on it at the same time. Is the engine not running, why are you replacing the cam sensor?
