    The knock sensor is under the intake manifold right in the middle of the top of the engine. it is black about one inch in diameter about 7/16 of an inch high with a two wire black connector on it.
    The knock sensor is a piezo cell that generates a voltage when it detects a knock it is tested using a oscilloscope and looking at a patten. Common Subaru fault code.
