    Its a simple 3 wire Hall effect switch one bolt holding to the engine block, driver's side rear of the engine block. My labor guide says it is a 2 hour job to replace so it must be difficult to get to but instructions look easy. There are two companies that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores and much cheaper than the factory manual try Alldata which is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online or Mitchell on line http://bit.ly/Mitchell1_Online_Repair_Manuals and get an online repair manual subscription. Alldata is the better of the two in my opinion.
