Here is what I was able to find. I hope it helps.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the air cleaner case.
On DOHC engine, remove the intercooler.
Disconnect the sensor connector.
Remove the sensor from its mounting.

To install: Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
Tighten the sensor to 17.4 ft. Lbs.

NOTE
The extraction area of the knock sensor wire must be positioned at a 60 degree angle relative to the engine rear.
