I am in the middle of replacing the crankshaft position sensor on my 2005 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L, and have run into an issue with how to actually replace it and route the cabling. I have the timing belt covers off, and have removed the Crankshaft Position Sensor bolts, but am baffled by how I should remove the old one (preferably without cutting the wires, and more importantly install the new one. It looks like I may have to remove the Power Steering unit to give me enough space to route the new sensor (large connector ends). Does anyone know what specific bolts, or equipment I need to pull out to get the new one installed?

I also can't seem to find the step-by-step procedure for the balance belt replacement. If you can direct me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

sbr711 is an unknown quantity at this point

CKP wire routing ---- remove steering pump, remove bracket.. look at how wire is ran, and the 2 mounting point for the wire retainer into the sheetmetal.. BE 100% sure that you get the sensor wire properly tucked into the passage there behind the oil pump cog,, otherwise the belt can & will saw through the pigtail and the frayed wiring will short and cause a no start or bump when running... BEEN THERE--DONE THAT...
