1999 DOHC Sable EGR Sensor Replacement

I blew a code for the EGR system and I suspect that it is the EGR sensor. I tested the solenoid (ok) and the EGR valve (ok). Problem is, the sensor is located in a ridiculous spot, between the throttle body and transmission dipstick; I only saw it because I removed the throttle body cover.

Are there any recommendation out there about how to get access to the sensor?? Namely, has anyone done this before? What did you remove to access it?

I appreciate any help I can get.

It's just a bear to get at. Just takes some time.

It seems that way. Does that mean I have to remove the upper intake manifold??!

You shouldn't have to. The manual doesn't mention it either. I just had to reach around the tight area.
