E34 crankshaft sensor

Is the crankshaft sensor located towards the top or the bottom of the engine? I figured that since it's related to the crankshaft, it would be located towards the bottom, but I can't see anything that resembles it. I see the sensor on the top part of the engine, but I'm assuming that is the camshaft sensor. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks for the diagram. Do I have to remove something in order to view this item? I'm assuming that the sensor I'm looking for is not located on top of the engine?

Probably the fan for easier access...
You will know it when you see it compared with the diagram mate... It is more central than anything as it acts as cam sensor too lol
Good luck Fella...

Picture is worth etc

Its the metal cylinder at about the 10 o'clock position on the toothed disk behind the crankshaft pulley

This one has a cable tie on it (but it isn't there now)

It's easier to see with all the belts, hoses and pulleys out of the way

Probably easier to get at from underneath? Taking off the plastic pan under the front?
or maybe not?

Go contents select 12 - 14 - 155

The connector is under the wiring box on the LHS and has a wire clip you need to press in to remove it
