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.

Take the belt off. Leave the A/C connected. Pull the 3 bolts out of the A/C compressor. Then you can remove the CKP sensor. More than likely it is bad and needs to be replaced.
