Unplugging the Crank Position Sensor

Wow, I feel like an idiot.
I read up on the FAQ on how to replace the crank position sensor and I was having no luck with it no matter how much I tried.

(FAQ: http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/f-q...-5-altima.html)

Turns out I was pressing on the clip incorrectly. I guess I didn't look at the pics closely enough. But hopefully this pic helps anyone else that has problems getting the pug disconnected. I wanted to add this to the FAQ thread, but can't post any replies.

Whenever I tried replacing mine, I got the connector off.. but the actual sensor wouldn't come out of the motor.

How often do these sensors go out? Are they behind the timing chain?

@nadjkovic - yeah it's difficult to get enough leverage to pull it out. i had to keep twisting it for a while and then tugging the crap out of it before it would finally pop out.

@gable - the crank position sensors using ht e old plastic design are prone to failure and will likely need to be replaced at some point. i haven't heard of people having problems after switching to one of the new metal ones.

it's on the right side of the engine block. there's a good description of how to find it in the faq i linked to in the op.

Do you know what year they switched over to the metal one? I'll look at the link now.
