T&C 2006 Camshaft sensor replacement on 2006 Chrysler Town & Country

Hi, I own a Town & Country 2006 minivan. The check engine light went on, the engine stutters and the check indicates the camshaft sensor is malfunctioning. The auto parts shop wants $400 for parts & installation. I saw the parts online for about $50 and my question is: 1. How do I replace the camshaft sensor myself? Where is it located at? 2. Will any part that's fits my cars' model do, or do I need a specific brand? Thanks!
