I have a picture form the Chrysler book and can give you good directions. If you look under the passenger side of the vehicle, the sensor sits in the top of the transmission bell housing at about 2:00 position. it is held in by 2 hex head (metric) bolts and follow the wires up to disconnect them. When installing just drop in and tighten bolt and plug in new connector.graphic
