Hi Sir or Madam Thank you for choosing JA, I will do my very best to assist you with your concern.
Hi there!
To change the sensor you must remove the timing cover and timing belt. The sensor is bolted to the engine block behind the belt.
You might be able to sneak it out around the belt, and get it out. This is a little tricky to do, so I would expect to do the belt at the same time.
Hope this helps!
