Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros. Com.

The vehicle speed sensor is located on the trans-axle below the air filter box. Here are the directions for replacement. The attached pictures correlate with these directions.

PROCEDURES
REMOVAL

1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.

NOTE: When the battery has been disconnected and reconnected, some abnormal drive symptoms may occur while the power-train control module relearns its adaptive strategy. The vehicle may need to be driven 10 miles or more to relearn the adaptive strategy.

2. Remove the engine air cleaner.

3. Disconnect the electrical connector from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).

4. Remove the VSS bolt.

5. Remove the vehicle speed sensor from the trans-axle.
INSTALLATION

1. Replace the O-ring.

2. Install the VSS bolt and tighten to 8-10 Nm (71-88 lb in).

3. Connect the electrical connector.

4. Install the engine air cleaner.

5. Connect the battery cable.

Thank you! This is exactly what I needed. Is the same part number used in both the 2.0/2.5L automatic and manual transmissions?

Welcome back. From what I can tell, the automatics are the same. However, one for a manual transmission will be different.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe

Well, it sounded easy. Got the air cleaner removed, but cannot find the VSS under it.

It is on the lower rear of the transmission. See if this picture helps you find it.
