Camshaft sensor bank 2 replacement

So I have a bad camshaft sensor and already have the part and everything. What's the easiest way to do this without removing the throttle body and air intake? Can I reach it from under the car or anywhere else? I've looked all over youtube and can't find anything with those specifics so was hoping you guys could help me out! Thanks a lot

04 G35 Sedan performance package. 70k Eibach springs and sway bars. 19 inch wheels. Plenum spacer.
You'll have to do it by feel from the passenger side. You can reach back behind the engine and remove the bolt. Then remove the connector. That seems to by the easiest way I have seen.

The easiest way is to actually remove the throttle body.

I did both of mine without removing anything but the sensors. You have to do the driver's side blind and have to lean over your pass side fender and reach under the intake. The Oring may be stuck so it will take some finger power to twist and pull it out. It's 10mm, I used a 1/4 drive ratchet. I would suggest greasing the new oring before install.

I did the driver side one from underneath the car, was pretty easy.

I did the passenger side about 3600 miles ago in the driveway, leaning over the passenger fender. Kind of a PITA but doable. I have big hands, smaller would be better. I think I just removed the plastic engine cover and a bracket in the way. There are videos on YouTube, I watched a couple before doing mine.

Pull the intake and throttle body.

I've heard people go behind the engine from the passenger side. But I've just pulled the intake and TB. TB is like 4 allen bolts, takes most people about an average of 30 minutes to pull everything off.
