Hi Carpetro1,

If I am understanding your question the answer is yes. You remove the one bolt that is holding it in and pull it out. It has a seal on it so you may have to pull with a little force.

Please let me know if I am not understanding correctly. Thanks

This is the part the dealer told me it was. It's called the operating valve position sensor located on the side of the head close to the firewall passenger side.

That is different then the cam sensor. That is for your variable valve timing system.

I included a document that shows number 1 is the part they told you about and number 3 is the cam sensor.

Here is a guide that explains a little more about these system:

To answer your question, it looks like this just unbolts by the one screw and you pull it out. There is an o-ring that must be changed and then you torque it back to 9Nm.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

It is behind the camshaft gear. I attached a picture. Let me know if that is what you needed.

Take care,
Joe

Hi,

Looks like this is a duplicate post. I will close it. Just respond to the other one where we have all the detail so if others have the same issue they can see what you found. Thanks
