    For Bank 1 on Nissan. The rear sensor. Works fine. Cleared trouble code. When this sensor goes bad it can cause the C1130 code and Cam sensor code. Test your sensor's resistance before replacing.

      Comments about CARQUEST by Intermotor Camshaft Sensor:

      Camshaft sensor was easy to install once you figure out how to get the connector off. I've never seen a connector like the one to this sensor. Instead of the usual squeeze and pull style connector, you have to push on the end of the connector toward the engine block while sliding the connector away from the block. Once I figured that out (after I removed the sensor from the block - of course, then the install was easy). The hardest part was retrieving the bolt that I dropped because there is a wiring harness bracket right next to where the sensor bolt goes. Overall, less the couple delays, it would have been a 5-10 minute install.

              • Q:

                I have an 03 Nissan Maxima 3.5, and the engine light is one. When hooked up to a computer, it states that a Cam position sensor is needed. When I looked it up on here the right sensor came up. Do both left and right have to be replaced? or is one more important that the other?

                  A:

                  No, Haley, it is not necessary to replace both the left and right side sensors. However, it is always recommended replacing on both sides at the same time, wherever possible. Both will currently be the same age-if one has failed, it is likely that the other is in a similar condition and so could easily fail soon.

                  A:

                  I'm happy to help, ZO! This BWD/Intermotor Engine Camshaft Position Sensor is designed for the left or intake camshaft. The intake sensor should have the angled plug as indicated by the Product Application. Bank 1 is your right sensor or exhaust sensor and is the straight plug. This is the correct part for bank 1 in your 2003 Infiniti G35 3.5L.
