It is not difficult. It is located on the timing cover on the passenger side of the engine. You'll see a wire harness going to a hall effect sensor with a 10mm bolt. They should cost around $80.

However, there was also a Recall in 2003, ID# 46615 involving a bad solder joint on the crank and cam sensor control boards. You can read about it here:

Where is the cam sensor in a 2002 nissan quest?


HI Chuck! The cam position sensor is inside the distributor on the quest. If the cam sensor has gone bad you need to replace the distributor assembly as it is not servicable. Before replacing the distributor, take the cap off and make sure the rotor is turning when you crank the engine. If it is not then check the timing belt as the distributor is driven by the cam shaft. If the belt is broken the cam shaft will not turn and you could get this code.The cam sensor is located under the plastic cover located under the rotor button

I have a 2002 Nissan Maxima 3.5 With code PO345 Bank 2. I understand this to be the cam shaft sensor. Which censor is bank 2? The one towards the radiator , or the one towards the Firewall?


Bank two is towards the Radiator. You should check with a nissan dealership. call them up and give them your Vin # and have them run it for any recalls. There is a old recall that Nissan will replace both cam sensors for free if your car falls under the Vin range.
