Can anyone provide me with details on how to access the crankshaft position sensor? Can anyone provide me any good diagrams other than the autozone website?

I removed the Alternator and bracket to get to the sensor which is located between the fire wall and the block towards the center. A 10mm 1/4" socket to remove. Note: point the small ratchet away from you for clearance... There is an oil seal on the sensor so it will be a little tough getting it out. Remember the angle of the wire harness when removing. The sensor mounting nut is on a screw stud that also might come completely out...

I don't have any diagrams but it's in the back of the engine just above the oil pan
