Camshaft position sensor location

Hi, I am trying to locate the cam position sensor on, if there is one fitted, on my daughters Jimny, M13 VVT DOHC engine.
I can find the crank sensor below the alternator OK but there is no cam sensor fitted at the front of the engine as I have seen on various photos.
There doesn't appear to be one fitted at the rear either, so I wonder does this variant have one?. Any guidance appreciated.

Bump. A photo of it's exact location would be nice. Anybody?

Front of the engine on the right hand side at the top as you stand in front of it staring at the engine on my M13a. I need to see a VVT engine to know if they moved it.

Thanks Kirkynut, here's a picture of my '08 VVT (looks the same as the one at the top of the thread). Any help welcomed. Chris

The VVT moved it to the back of the engine on the inlet cam (because the phaser is at the front) so the sensor is at the back on the inlet side, I think it is on the underside of the cam, forwards of the EGR valve. Left side if you are at the radiator looking towards the windscreen.

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

Thanks facade, this was another person's question but reminded me of something I should be doing.

I found this picture of the camshaft sensor in situ on the VVT engine. Although not shown in the photo it's actually hiding behind a wiring harness mounting plate.
Hope this helps someone. Chris
