Temp sensor location question

My temp gauge goes dead and tow haul flashes. I read somewhere on here that's it's the sensor gone bad. If that's true is the sensor inside tranny or on the outside.

The TFT sensor requires transmission pan removal to access.

At least there's a drain plug in a 5R110 so you don't wear most of the oil.

Once the pan is removed, is the sensor in a pretty noticeable place? I assume once the pan is removed, it is a cake walk to replace. It's time for a trans service anyways on mine. I was thinking of doing it myself.
