I can't see how to get to the cam position sensor on my 2002

Customer Question

I can't see how to get to the cam position sensor on my 2002 Montero sport 3.0 liter to replace it.
JA: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?
Customer: That's all

It is located in the front of the engine under the timing belt cover.

That s the bigger 3.5 liter engine. My 2002 sport has the smaller 3.0 liter engine. The cam sensor is located behind the engine block. I don.t see how I can get to it without remov eing the top half is f th engine. I need to know how you are suoosed to get to that sensor
