See attached pic for location.

To remove, locate the sensor on the engine. Remove the retaining bolt and slide the sensor from the engine. Disconnect the wiring and reverse the order to install.

I hate to say it, but I don't remember the exact size bolt. And yes, that should be it. However, I have to say there may be one issue. On SOME of these vehicles, the wiring for the sensor is behind the timing belt which makes it more difficult to access. It these cases, the belt may need removed to route the wiring properly and prevent damage to the wiring from the belt. If you determine your's is like that, I have to ask how much experience you have working on vehicles because removing the belt and replacing it requires a lot.

I was afraid you would say that. In that case, the timing belt, tensioner pulley, and idler pulley need removed to safely route the wiring harness in order to prevent damage by the belt and pulleys. It's not an easy or fast job.

In estimate, I would think the average shop would charge you for around 3 hours labor.
