The knock sensor is the top middle most sensor usually screwed into a solid part of hte engine with wires going to it. You can use an open ended wrench to take it off, in most cases.

3.0l. What is causing knocking?

If the code is p0325, it should be repaired, HOWEVER, on nissan products from 1996 to 2002, a p0325 does NOT illuminate the check-engine lamp. Knock sensor on that vehicle is for PING control not for emissions reduction. On other vehicles (say a chevy with a p0325) it WILL light the check engine lamp which is an automatic smog fail.

Replace knock sensors

Unless you have a check engine light staying on and the trouble code is for the knock sensor, it should not be replaced.
The code can be present even when the sensor is working correctly.

I need to replace the knocking sensor on my 1998 nissan pathfinder. Can you please guide me?

to replace a knock sensor on a 1998 pathfinder is a big job.
you have to take out the whole intake manifold, so you can reach the sensor.
if you want to do it by yourself \, first you should have ready all the tools and parts.: including a torque wrench and a set of intake manifold gaskets. you can try here for some good cheap parts.
and be ready to work few hours if you do not have much experience as a automotive mechanic.
so, good luck, if you did not do it already.

I have a faulty knock sensor and need to replace

very common for these to have a knock sensor code. it usually isnt the knock sensor that is the problem. it will set the code when the knock sensor has adjusted all it can.
By any chance has the car been a little gutless lately. Thats because the knock sensor is retarding the timing because of pinging. First thing I would do is fill the tank with chevron highest octane and add the techron cleaner to help clean your injectors. And then clear the code and drive for a couple days. If the code comes back, clear it again. Could take a couple weeks to clean up the injectors but what you really are trying to decide is if the truck seems to have more power which will be an indicator that pinging is less.
Going from summer fuels to winter fuels can create this sort of issue. The blends are not the same
