hi, yes it's a quick job! just remove the 4th ignition coil (that's the one on the far right of the engine) it's held in place with a 10mm bolt,this will give you better access to the 10mm bolt which holds the cam sensor in place,be careful not to drop the bolt into the hole and remember to remove the rubber 'o' ring from the old sensor as the new one probably won't have one. the engine managment light should go out after a few trips!

no need to reprogram the computer as the light will cancel itself out after a few trips,failliing this connect it up to a obd reader to cancel the light as i have done with mine.
