Default CPS "cam position sensor" drivers side

Sorry I forgot to say what I am working on. I am working on my 2003 A6 2.7t.
So I am in the middle of a timing belt water pump valve cover gasket replacement... etc Long story short I have made it to the part where I need to remove the cps on the drivers side??? what is the trick to this, I have looked all over the site for a diy or even an opinion on the best way to remove this PITA.....? Some insight from someone that has done this would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

It would help if you told us what year car and which engine you have...

On that engine the Cam Position Sensor is secured to the front of the head by two 10mm bolts. Simply disconnect the electrical connector and back the bolts out. That's it, the sensor should come right off.

There is a coolant hose that is in the way I think I just need to figure out a way to remove it and there will be room to remove the sensor. It will almost come off without removing the hose, thats why I was hoping there was a trick to getting it off....

I recall we had to remove the hose & the piece it connected to in order to get clearance to get the DS CPS off. Couldn't do it any other way.

You are correct CRuby I finely had time to work on it last night and was able to get it removed. I was surprised how brittle the plastic plug was on the cps it cracked as I was unplugging it, luckily I had bought a new cps to replace it while I had it off anyway. Thanks for the help..
