Mushroom shaped gadget on the back of the block just above and around the corner from the oil filter. About 1.5 inches in diameter. Just unscrews after disconnecting the connector.

Probably a special socket available but I just use channel-lock pliers.

Well the knock sensor is "behind" the crank pulley. It is also around the "back" on the "side" of the block approximately below the #2 spark plug. The crank sensor is the one that is directly behind the crank pulley/balancer
