The sensor is at the front right top of the engine beneath the large plastic engine cover. It is held on by a single T-30 torx bit machine screw. Please note that OBD-II diagnostic trouble codes, such as the code relied on to "advise" you, can NEVER be used to "directly" condemn parts. In the case of a camshaft position sensor, the camshaft position sensor must be evaluated on an automotive scope to determine if the sensor itself is bad or if you perhaps have a situation where there is simply a loose wire or other fault in the circuit (or even a fault in another unrelated engine system). If the camshaft position sensor output has not been directly measured on an automotive scope, there is a possibility that it is a perfectly good sensor and thus the problem lies elsewhere. If a diagnostic was done, and the sensor is out of spec. then it should be replaced. OBD-II codes ONLY provide clues as to faults in vehicle systems and sometimes the clues aren’t even that great or are flat out wrong.
