The cam shaft sensor is relatively easy to remove.
Figure 1

The cam shaft sensor is relatively easy to remove. It is located at the end of the cylinder head on the right side of the motor (facing from the drivers seat) just below the fuel lines. The sensor (red arrow) is held in place with a single T30 screw from below the cylinder head. Remove this screw. There is also a wiring connection but this is much easier to remove with the sensor out of the engine.

Wiggle and pull the sensor down and out of the motor (red arrow).
Figure 2

Wiggle and pull the sensor down and out of the motor (red arrow). There may be a little oil on the sensor but there should be no debris or metal.

Here is the sensor.
Figure 3

Here is the sensor. Make sure that the old gasket came out with the sensor (yellow arrow). It is easier to unclip and remove the wiring harness (red arrow) with the sensor out of the engine. Installation is the reverse of removal.
