Talking 99 V70XC cam position sensor location

Can anyone tell me exactly where the cam sensor is on this car? Does the wiring for it run underneath the fuel rail?

On a '98 xc it's on the back (Opposite side from Timing belt side) closer to firewall up on CamShaft , it runs off of the Exhaust camshaft Upper engine mount partially conceals vieew of flat front w/ two screws - clip for connector is closer to distributor cap -

Thanks for your response john campbell. I have, since posting, found the location of it on a '99. The plug in connection (if you are standing in front of the car), is behind the intake manifold, roughly around spark plug 4 and 5. The wire then follows around the driver's side (though a real maze of wires and small vacuum lines) and the sensor itself is held on by one bolt (the head of which is visible) on the side of the engine by the firewall, on the extreme driver's side edge of the engine. I found it very easy to remove and install the sensor end by using a small mirror propped against the firewall. The rest is simply a matter of snaking the wire out of the "maze" around to the connector, which you can barely get to by reaching your hand thru the manifold.
