Good day,
It is on the bottom front of the motor, kinda under the A/C compressor... It bolts through the timing chain cover... You have to loosen the A/C compressor and slide it out away from the motor to remove the sensor, as it is a bit long... I'll post a pic tomorrow if you can't locate it...

Cheers!!!

Yeah that. If you are looking at the motor head on, it's to the very bottom left. Only sensor down there, kinda hard to miss.
