Crankshaft Position sensor-2012 R/T Charger RWD

I got a check engine light & have to replace the crankshaft position sensor. Now that I got the part, the diagrams on websites show the location of the sensor (part 05149230AA) behind the engine block on the driver side. However, I can't see it. Is it possible it's located elsewhere? Or is it behind something else that needs to be removed in order to view it?

Any help would be great

Thank you for the help. Hoping to find a maintenance manual for my year soon. I changed the crankshaft position sensor & cleared the error but check engine light came back on with same error P0016. Any recommendations?

The next 'reported' fix on the print out with the codes is replacing variable camshaft timing (VCT) solenoid
Was your car part of recall P01? If so has it been done yet? What printout are you using? P0016 diagnosis involves seeing if the DTC is active, then doing an exhaust phaser cleaning with the factory scan tool, then checking the cam and crank sensors and their wiring connectors for issues, checking the cam and crank signals with a lab scope for irregularities, then checking the timing chain.
