    Easy to install as a Camshaft Position Sensor. Very hard to install as a Crankshaft Position Sensor.

    I purchased a different brand somewhere else, but this one is identical and I wish someone had explained all this to me.

    I have a 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8

    Used as a Camshaft Position Sensor:
    Very easy to replace. With a 10mm socket, you can have it out and back in under 2 minutes. It is located right on top. Could not be easier to get to .

    Used as a Crankshaft Position Sensor:
    Very hard for me to replace, but maybe my mistakes will make it a little easier on you. You have to understand that although I am learning I know very little about engines & have limited tools. Don’t let the one bolt fool you. I could not get to it from the top of the engine so I jacked up the front and put it on jack stands. Slide under head first and use your left arm to find the sensor. It is on the lower back of the motor toward the passenger side.
    Remove the electronics plug first. I struggled to get the plug off until I thought to use the Cam PS as an example (You squeeze in on the plug). You will need a flashlight in your right hand. Remove the 10mm bolt with a socket on an extension. Bolt removal was easy which is what got my hopes up. 
    If yours is like mine, removing the old one will be the hardest part. There is no easy solution. You will need to get a screwdriver in between the plastic sensor and the metal & then twist the screwdriver to push the sensor out. This will only get it started. From there, good luck. My back is still sore the next day. I cut my arm & had a sharp pain in my shoulder. Beware of the sharp edges on the exhaust your arm will be on. When I finally got the rubber seal to break loose, I thought I was going to have to remove another part to get the sensor all the way out, but it you are patient and twist it around it will come out. Try a twisting motion while pulling.
    Going back in was even harder for me, but hopefully not for you. I thought I could put the bolt on it and use the force of tightening the bolt to pull the sensor into place. The rubber seal would not pull in and the bolt tab broke off. This goes to show why it is so hard to get the old one out. Not knowing the tab was broken, I “busted a gut” trying to push the sensor in with a screwdriver. I then broke the electronics connector part with a screw driver. I took the one back off the cam to use on the crank and it hit me that if I put little oil on the rubber seal it might help. I got the oil by running my finger inside the opening. I went back under the car and instead of pushing the sensor straight in, I turned it back and forth while pushing in. This time it went in. Installed the bolt and plugged it back up. WAHOO
