And it just screws out like a bolt.
i believe it is on the drivers side , located under the power steering pump area, you disconnect the wire connector to the sending unit, then get the proper sending unit socket , and ratchet and remove it, before installing , wrap a couple of layers of white teflon tape around the threads, and then install it, make sure you start it in straight and don't cross thread it, after tightened it, then hook the wire connector back up to it, and you are ready to go, start engine, and check for any leaks, " there shouldn't be any as long as it is tight.
