It should be located on a hose that attaches near the top of the gas tank.

The hose looks like this but can't find you a good pic with the gas tank.

If you click on the picture it will open and then you can zoom in.

It looks like the hose that runs from the top of the fuel tank and then up along the fuel filler hose. To remove it, push in on the white pieces and then pull it off the nipples on either end.

Check the nipples to see if they are cracked or broken off. The one on my fuel tank was all but broken completely off. I was getting a vacuum leak code. Instead of replacing the whole fuel tank, I sleeved the nipple back on with a piece of copper tubing. It's worked for 2 years now.

Nope, didn't open. That's ok, thanks. Still looking for something definitive. I was hoping it was something that could be accessed without having to drop the tank. Working by yourself is a pita sometimes.

UPDATE . . . Looking further and more intently, using an inspection mirror and flashlight.
Twisting and moving those hoses around I put the new part up against a connection and twisted the part on the end of the hose and what do ya know, there it is. Comes in on the rear inside corner of the top of the tank. Now if an old guy with arthritis in every joint can lay on his back in the driveway and change this sensor without lowering the tank, then anyone can and it didn't cost 500 bucks in labor plus 84 bucks for the part and another 24 in shop consumables that the service center at the dealership wanted to charge me.
