I recently had a diagnostic ran on my car and it indicated that I need to replace the crank position sensor for my 1996 ford thunderbird. Can you tell me how to replace this part?

REMOVAL

Disconnect Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor and A/C compressor electrical connectors from the engine wiring harness.

INSTALLATION

Make sure the CKP sensor mounting surface is clean and sensor O-ring is in proper location on the assembly.
Position CKP sensor assembly and install the retaining screw. Tighten to 8-12 Nm (71-106 in lb) .

CAUTION: Do not overtighten the screw.

Install the A/C compressor. Evacuate and recharge the A/C system.
Properly route the engine wiring harness and connect the electrical connectors to the A/C compressor and crankshaft sensor.
