Installing a new CPS

Thanks for the help on the earlier post, could you give me a little more direction on the new CPS install. Haven't climbed under the truck yet, maybe it's obvious??!? Just replace the sensor & plug the wire harness in right? Will it be visible from underneath? Thanks (I've got two Xmas parties a waiting,, don't want to search for a long time if I can get a little more info here!)

thanks for the insight. I was able to pick up the last CPS in town 20mins. before all the auto paarts stores shut down for Christmas Eve. It took me 1 hour to install thanks to you guys (next time I think i could do it in half the time). It was a little tight to get to, but with a good creeper & light I had no problems. Thanks for all the tips, I figure it saved me about $200 at the dealer! My CPS part was $29.

Merry Christmas!
