look on the front of the cyl head (on the front on the exhaust side of the head) there will be a connector that you'll unplug (usually have difficulty here since the overflow tank is right there). You'll need a 5mm alan key to release the cam sensor...should take no more than 10 min to complete the change. Just be sure to replace the o-ring with the cam sensor.
