Trying to change a knock sensor - can you help? 2006 Dodge Durango

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

Yes. It was the knock sensor under the manifold at the rear of the block

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?

We have gotten all the way through removing the bolts holding the fuel rail, and intake. There is a tube at the rear of the throttle body that is giving us a problem in pulling it off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Help if I could get step by step directions.
