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

Yesterday when I was driving to work, the MIL light came on. That is the first time I've ever had it come on in the Charger. I didn't notice anything odd about how the car was running other than when I was sitting in the parking lot with the engine still on, I noticed a slight miss or shudder. I drove the car several times during the day afterwards and each time the MIL light was still on but it drove fine, no shudder/miss. When I got home last night, I hooked my OB2 code reader and pulled P0016 "Crankshaft position-Camshaft position correlation- Bank 1 Sensor A". So today, no MIL light and everything is running fine. I did a little research and read up on the error and apparently after 3 good trips with no fault, the light turns off. This would make sense as I drove 3 additional times after the trip to work when the light came on. So my question is, should I still take it in to the dealer and have them check it? Is there even anything they can check, especially now that the light isn't on? I saw something about a recall in a previous post, but have not received any notifications of any recalls on mine.
