Anyone know where the Cam Position Sensor is?

Hi!
Check Engine light just came on and the reader shows P0341 Cam Position Sensor. Does anyone know where it's located so I can test/replace it?
Thanks!

The camshaft sensor (red arrow) is located on the front left side of the engine, right between the valve cover and oil filter housing.

On the front of the engine, under the decorative panel with the MB emblem on it. Round and on the left-hand side (right-side when viewed from in front of the car).
