All I removed was the FICM, the degas bottle, and the stud that is in your way when you reach back to find the sensor. The stud has something grounded to it, but Im not sure what. You will also have to undo a few other electrical connections (not sure what they are, but they will obviously be in the way.) Get a deep 1 1/16" socket, a swivel, and 3 or 4 6-8 inch extensions and its easy to turn out. Once you get the everything taken off, you can shine a light back behind the turbo and see some heat shield/insulation that is wrapped around the sensor wires. Pull that back and undo the connection. Put the socket on the swivel first, then put that whole thing on the sensor, connect your extensions, and spin that bad boy out. Thread the new one in by hand as far as you can, and snug it up with the socket again. Put it all back together and your done.

I tried to take a picture of it but the light wasnt the greatest and its so damn far back in there I couldnt get a good shot of it anyways.

Also: The sensor is behind the turbo, and also SOMEWHAT below it, it's kind of hard to see if you dont kow what you are looking for, but the insulation around the wires should give it away. Mine was red or orange I think, you can reach back there and feel it, if it feels like some sort of insulation, thats it.

And: I would go ahead and put a new pigtail on it too, takes an extra 10 minutes but lets you know for sure it wasnt messed up either. Just make sure to match up the wires.

Good luck

Edit: If you have any questions feel free to pm me, it should come to my phone and Ill get back to you asap.

Replace the connector too. 5C3Z-12224-AA I think.
The ICP on the 2003 usually pushes oil into the connector and wires when it fails.
Make sure they give you a 3C3Z ICP not the later 4C3Z

Tried to take you a pic man



1 is the insulation that is wrapped around the wires, 2 is the stud I recommend taking out, or you will beat your hand and wrist up trying to reach back in there. I know this is a terrible pic but its about the best I could do. All of the electrical connections that you seen in this pic were disconnected too when I did it, and maybe a few more.
