Best Answer

First, you have to pull the wire plug from the knock sensor. Then it simply screws in and out using a wrench. (There is only one bolt holding it on.)

The problem is the location. It's located below the intake manifold up above the oil filter as high as you can reach.

To get at it from the top you have to take the intake manifold off.

To get at it from the bottom. Remove the oil filter (for ease of movement) then use an open-end wrench with a long handle to take off the bolt and unplug it. Installation is the opposite of removal.
