THe knock sensor lives on the drivers side of the engine, sort of under the intake next to the throttle body. Its bolted to the block with a 12mm bolt. When installing a new one, don't torque the bolt to any more than 16 ft/lbs or the sensor will be damaged. Thats all there is to it.

you have roughly an inch or two in diameter to squeeze your wrench with a extension in. have fun, first time took me 1hr. btw, it's a good idea to use a magnetic tool to get the bolt out once you have ratched it loose. hope this helps

Taking it out is the easy part. Figuring out how to get the bolt back in if you have a big hand is the challenge.
