2008 CRD - P0340 Code

Good morning,

Could use some guidance. I have a 2008 WK 2wd CRD with 120k miles, owned since new. Got a Check Engine Light yesterday. I have a very basic scanner I have used with success to diagnose glow plugs and glow plug module issues in the past. Hooked it up and got a P0340 Generic Camshaft Position Sensor A Circuit (Bank 1 or Single Sensor) message - this is the exact message I got as it reads on my scanner. Who knows if my scanner is sophisticated enough to properly diagnose. Can anyone share experiences and location? I have no idea where it is, what it looks like, if this is a typical issue as these age and if this an easy fix. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer.

Camshaft position sensor is actually part of a recall and a known issue - I'm not an expert but replacement should be pretty easy, just do a bit of googling.
