I am sending you a diagram of it's location. According to the instructions best access is accomplished by removing the catalytic converter from the engine. Here is a link to the diagram

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

Mike, that diagram did not help at all. I was able to find a diagram on Google that was very precise on the location.
Mazda Mechanic: Mike V., Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok then.
I wonder if you actually had to remove the catalytic as the service manual suggested or if you were able to work around that as well?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Mike, I reviewed my credit card bill and noticed you went ahead and charge me $20.00 for the diagram. Please refund me the amount. As I stated, the diagram did not help me at all.
