just replacing my camshaft position sensor..

great DIY.

unfortunately I was doing mine toward the end of day and ran out of light...so I'm just waiting on running the new wire.

running the new wire back the same way is a real biatch...

one thing I WISH I might have tried first (just a heads up) would be to maybe take a piece of string and some solder or bendable wire.

I'd tie the string to the wire or solder and then make a hook or something so you can attach it on the electrical connection end of the camshaft position sensor. You have to be able to clamp it on with one hand so using bendable wire or solder wire would be perfect I bet.

Then pull the old sensor out with the string attached. Disconnect the old sensor and attach the one to the end of the string and pull it back...

Hopefully now you can just fish your new on back in with the string.

I didn't think of trying this until I pulled it out and now I'm not quite sure how it runs back in.

worth a try.
