Default Driver Side Crankshaft Position Sensor

Hello All,

I'm trying to replace my driver side or left side crankshaft position sensor. Does anyone have a writeup they can direct me to or tutorial on how to replace this sensor?? I've been looking all over the internet and can't seem to find anything..closest I've gotten has been some front end images of the motor that outline the vague location. Thanks a lot!

If you look at the photos in the link you can see the stuff you need to remove to get to the sensor.

Yeah I know he said crank an not cam but the way he described it I figured that's what he meant. The crank should be on the bottom to left ( drivers side ) of the crank pulley though.

i admit i too read it as a cam sensor, as he said driver's side. there is only one crank sensor, which is at the very bottom of the motor. it looks like you do not have to remove the timing belt or covers to get to it.

the link sha4000 posted shows where it is.

sensor is on the right-most side of the picture with the wire harness coming off it.

here the cover is on, but the crank pulley is off. you get the general idea of where it is. bottom right again.
