Default P0010 Error Code - Camshaft Position Sensor

I have a 2009 Saturn VUE XE 2.4L Cylinder DOHC ECOTEC Engine.
The malfunction indicator lamp stays on and displays the error code P0010.
Intake (A) camshaft position actuator circuit/open (Bank 1). The dealer wants ninety dollars to install the sensor. Anyone have any idea exactly where the sensor is located and how to replace it? Do you have to remove any other engine part to get to it? Pictures and diagrams would be appreciated.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have the extract to replace the actuator - its slightly too large to post. I can email if you send an address by private message (left click on my screen name).

I was able to attach two prerequisite files and description for 2.4 DTC P0010:

I never argue with a customer but the CMP shouldn't cause code P0010.

Me thinks you need to replace the intake cam actuator solenoid valve, which would be Item (2) on attached thumbnail:

Sad Re: P0010 Error Code - Camshaft Position Sensor

You are probably right. The Advance Auto Tech read the code P0010. I am now confused. If the message reads intake (A) camshaft position actuator circuit/open (Bank 1), I assumed it called for the part camshaft position sensor and not the camshaft position actuator solenoid valve. Looks like I am out of my comfort zone.

It looks like a simple job to replace either intake of exhaust actuator solenoid.

You'd have to remove air cleaner and engine cover but it looks "like wide open spaces" after that.

See post # 1 of this thread:

I don't know ... but I imagine a local GM dealer would know.

I received email from the OP (foreverto) for this thread saying he felt the P0010 repair would be covered under his 5-year / 100,000 warranty.

Check oil. Make sure you run correct weight and change regular. VVT engines depends on oil pressure to work and if low or needs changing then that would cause these problems. GM went to Dexos oil for this reason.

Default Re: P0010 Error Code - Camshaft Position Sensor

On my 2008 Saturn Vue, the cam shaft sensor is located on the driver's side on the front of the engine... nothing has to be removed to access it...
