2006 Chrysler Town & Country Question: T&C 2006 Camshaft sensor replacement

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!

    When it comes to these types of parts (engine management sensors) I suggest you use the parts from the manufacturer.
    If you plan of performing the work, spend the money and get a good repair manual. You might find a free manual here: http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info or go to http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription.
    Don't skimp here, you will save money by having the correct information for this repair, and for any others you will need.
