Lucky son of a bitch! Look at that paint! B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!

Good Luck on the Cam Sensor. It doesn't look that hard, but appearance and reality are never the same on these cars.

How do you get in there? You mean how do you get to the Cam Sensor? Purchasing a Chilton'* or Haynes Manual will help you out with that [I don't have a Chiltons, but the majority of members prefer Chiltons over Haynes]. It'* a few bucks, and will tell you how to get in there. You've gotta remove the coilpack/bracket, alt, water pump, and a few cooling system hoses [heater core ones, lower rad hose.. ]. Nothing too difficult, but I haven't done it, so I could be completely wrong.

you do it with the wheel off. i dont remember if you have to take off a cover or not, but on ours, you take the wheel off, and you look straight at the cam sensor. take out the cam sensor, turn the engine by hand, and look for it. you should see it within 2 crank rotations.

I did mine from the top and with a mirror. Slightly blurred picture of remnants was taken in the car. All I removed was the belt and (I think) the water pump pulley, no need to remove everything though might be easier with the resovoir removed. YMMV

I buy JB Weld at the Home Depot, usually in a rack in front of the paint counter and by the registers. Have been using the Quick for a lot of things lately but would want more than four minutes for this job.
