Hello my name is Jay thank you for your question

The Bank 1 Cam Sensor is the side of the engine on the passenger side. The sensor is located on the back of the cylinder head. The type of connector requires you to push the lock pin down for the connector to release. Then when plugging in the sensor, it's recommended to plug the sensor in first before installing the sensor. It's easier to get the connector to lock that way. Also it's recommended you use sensors from the dealer. After Market sensors never work properly.

Do you have any more questions on this?

do you have to take engine apart to get to it or can sensor be installed from outside engine by plugging in

Can you get to sensor w/o taking engine apart.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Just the upper engine cover is removed and you can access the sensor. The engine doesn't have to be taken all apart. It's about 1/2 hour to a hour labor
