In the above photos you can see the location of the camshaft sensor on the driver's side of the engine and the crankshaft position sensor is down on the back side of the engine (best seen from under the car & removed from above).
To replace either sensor you will need a 10mm metric bolt and a ratchet wrench. Don't forget the rubber o-ring. You're done!
