Thanks, ***** ***** is mounted to the front of the engine/bell housing. If you remove the air duct work for the throttle body and air filter, you should be able to locate it and change it frm the top under the hood. I am sending a diagram to help as well.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to earn a 5 star rating from you.
Just Answer does not compensate me for my time and resources, you do when you rate my answer by using the stars at the top of the page.
