I don't know if you need them, but here are the directions for replacing the sensor:

________________________________
Right Cylinder head
REMOVAL
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on this engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.

It is easier to remove/install sensor from under vehicle.
1. Raise and support vehicle.
2. Disconnect electrical connector at CMP sensor.
3. Remove sensor mounting bolt.
4. Carefully pry sensor from cylinder head in a rocking action with two small screwdrivers. This engine is equipped with a sensor spacer shim. If equipped, this shim will be located at sensor bolt hole between cylinder head and sensor mounting tang (TSB W08-18-00). Save this shim for sensor installation.
5. Check condition of sensor O-ring.

INSTALLATION
The Camshaft Position Sensor (CMP) on this engine is bolted to the front/top of the right cylinder head.
1. Clean out machined hole in cylinder head.
2. Apply a small amount of engine oil to sensor O-ring.
3. Install sensor into cylinder head with a slight rocking action. Do not twist sensor into position as damage to O-ring may result.

CAUTION: Before tightening sensor mounting bolt, be sure sensor is completely flush to cylinder head. If sensor is not flush, damage to sensor mounting tang may result.

4. Install mounting bolt and tighten to 12 Nm (106 in. Lbs.) Torque.
5. Connect electrical connector to sensor.
6. Lower vehicle.
