Do I need to remove the head to remove the Knock Sensor?

To take the knock sensor out does that require me taking the whole head off or is there another way i can take it out?

yes what he said, I used a 3/8 wrench 2 extensions, u-joint and 12mm socket

and when you are installing the new k/s a old hanger to bend up, little hands (kid,girlfriend) or tape in the socket to hold the bolt in place when you are starting the bolt will help alot

should take like 30mins

Not sure what you mean with head. If you mean the IM then no you don't need to pull it off. Extension and swivel. It's a pain to get the bolt back in after tho. I screw my hand up getting it back in. Everything is like a razor blade in there.

You need a skinny (110lb) girlfriend. That's what I used.

You'd think so, but no matter how many sexual favors I promised mine I couldn't get her to do it.

Well since my ex is not available I had to shove my hands in the hole. It was not pretty afterward.

How to know a max owner is a do-it-yourselfer: The inside of his IM is painted red.
