I'm sorry for not being clear enough for you to understand.
My question why did the dealer insisted that you replace the knock sensor-Did they scanned the computer and it came up prior to you departing the dealership was the check engine light On? You also stated an independent technician looked at it and didn't agree changing the knock sensor-I'm assuming now that you want to replace it yourself. Locate the knock sensor as illustrated in picture above -unplug it, get the correct size open end wrench or socket and remove it and reverse installation.
Are you experiencing engine knocking if not, might not be the problem it has to be detected by the computer and the required testing to prove its defective. Let me know if further assistance is needed.
