Thanks so much, it is an AX4S. Saying that link might help was quite an understatement. It made it into a 10 minute part swap, instead of an all day hunt for the VSS. The Haynes manual is wrong as it says to jack up the car and pull it from underneath. For anyone else doing this it is an easy job through the hood:1- reach in with the left hand while standing at the right fender. Feel for the VSS just below the #2 cylinder. It is on TOP of the transmission. You may need to pull back a heat shield.2- Pull of the electrical connector. Remove the 10mm bolt with a box / open end combo wrench.3- The VSS pulls straight out toward the driver"s side.4- The new VSS pushes straight in toward the passenger side. Bolt it. Plug it. Drive it.

Yes, for goodness sake, pay no attention to the factory service manual which wants you to pull the exhaust y-pipe and converters and go in from below. (Vulcan 3.0) I wasted a day starting this before realizing that you could indeed get to it from above. That being said, it is NOT easy to get to from above either, and you will need massage therapy afterwards. You can see what you are doing from the driver"s side fender area with a drop light stuffed down by the sensor area, but just barely. It helps to have hands like a monkey.On my 1993 3.0, I removed that plastic shield where the connectors for the EECIV and ABS diagnostic connectors clip to, otherwise there was no room. I also removed the bracket which holds the speedometer cable onto the cylinder head.Make sure the little gold colored wire clip which holds the speedometer cable in place on the VSS on the early 1990"s models has its rounded end facing the front of the car, otherwise the head shield won"t clip back on.The 10mm bolt which holds it in is a nuisance to get started and you have to be careful not to cross thread it. It should go back in with a 10mm nut driver in line with and touching the speedometer cable, pointing toward the left tire area.
