The ICP sensor is behind & under the turbo. You need a 1 1/16 socket to remove. I cut my socket down to just fit the sensor. I used a socket, swivel, extension, and then wrench to remove it. It is a TIGHT fit. I removed the driver battery, air filter, FICM, unbolted the degas bottle. Then remove the connector from the IPR valve, then remove the connector from the ICP and remove the sensor. See some attached pictures of items removed and location of ICP sensor. It is the one with the heat shielding.

I paid someone to do mine but I have been told you can reach it (with really long arms and alot of patience) from under and behind the engine. Good luck on this one.

I know its a pain. But when i replaced my icp and ipr sensors i pulled my turbo for a little extra room. It seemed to help me a little bit.
