How much of a PITA was that?
So much fun that we took it to a shop -yes we do get lazy at times around here.
I believe for the crank sensor you have to remove the harmonic balancer pulley, and for the cam sensor you have to remove the timing cover(?).
You might want to talk to Will or someone with a factory service manual for the appropriate year you are dealing with.
Good luck -that harmonic balancer is a joy to remove, and the cam sensor requires a few parts being removed -I forget what all this job entails.
