-just changed the cam sensor on my '99 Series II. (see my post under "Engine dies, no warning, no codes). I don't know if yours will be the same or not.

But, I suspect the first thing you will want to do is put the right front of the car on a jack stand, and remove that wheel. Then remove that flexible splash panel that keeps you from seeing the crankshaft pulley. With the splash panel removed, you should now be able to see the cam sensor. (-located just below the water pump, & above the crankshaft pulley.) (-attached with only one small bolt, and an "O-ring" that seals it in the hole) On mine, it was super easy to change, because I already had the crank pulley/harmonic balancer assembly removed.

I'm anxious to hear your reply, to see if yours is the same.

my son changed the 94 with out taking all that apart. it is right below the waterpump with one bolt holding it on. He also had to change the interupter magnet on the timing chain cover, which was a monster there in itself. But the cam sensor was smooth to change!!!
