Camshaft Position Sensor Replacement

Recently started having warm/hot start issues with my 03 S, had started thinking it was the crankshaft position sensor as I'd seen some other people mention it on here. Right as I was about to buy the crankshaft sensor from pelican I got a CEL:

Porsche fault code 112 - Phase sensor 1 (camshaft Hall-effect sensor 1)

I assume this is the camshaft position sensor on the back-passenger side of the engine near the AOS. I took the engine cover off and tried to find it but couldn't see it. Before I buy the sensor and rip out the AOS does anyone happen to have any clear pictures of this sensor on the engine? I've seen the diagram from the Alldata and Porsche manuals but it's not very clear to me.

Any help is appreciated...

Thanks for the tip. Funny enough, in all my years of buying parts from pelican I've never noticed the tabs on the product page for diagrams / notes etc...

Here's the only other diagram I can find that shows the sensors. I just wish it was more specific in showing how to get to them

Based on location the service position is going to me your best bet, nothing to be gained via the internal aluminum plate.
