i have a 95 jeep GCL. I can get my hands on the crank sensor but I cannot get any tools on it. What do I need to do to get it out of there?

CAUTION: On some models, two bolts are used to secure sensor to transmission. These bolts are specially machined to correctly space the sensor to flywheel. Do not attempt to install any other bolts.

Thanks but I know the procedure to take it out. I need to know how to get in there. The actual space is no where near as open as the illustration would lead you to believe. Cant get a wrench or a ratchet in there. The only thing I could think of was lowering the engine but im hoping for an easier way

Honestly, I've never done this before for this model car.I suggest you search the web.

Question. Are you having a problem with it cranking? The best thing I can find with my problem is the crankshaft sensor. I couldn't see how to get to the bolts either. Have you had any luck?
