First question I have to ask is why you need to replace this sensor? I had a situation where my dealer replaced my timing belt INCORRECTLY (off by a few degrees) and the car threw some codes indicating VCT sensor and Cam Position sensor were bad. Got somebody else to re-install the timing belt, and all was OK. Check there first if you have had a timing belt replacement recently...

On our 2000 ford escort zx2 the camshaft position sensor was located right below the oil cap. All it took was a 8mm ratchet.
