That part, I'm not sure of. But after more googling, I found another diagram. It appears to be on the right side of the engine.

According to the diagrams, you have 2 cam actuators(which are the 2 in front of the engine) and 1 cam position sensor at the rear of the engine. Sounds like you might have replaced one of the actuators instead.
