Camshaft Position Sensor Location

Camshaft Position Sensor.jpg
Can someone please help me understand more of this diagram?

1. What are parts #1, #2 & #18 got to do with this diagram?
Those three parts are at the top of the engine by the oil filling spout.

2. The two Camshaft Sensor types in the diagram does not look like the one for my 2001 V70XC/XC70.
The one specified for my car has a stainless steel plug, red and white set of wires and and a wire harness.

3. Where in the world is the sensor located on the engine? All I see are for the V70. The Volvo repair manual's
location/description is vague.

Thank you.

1,2,18 are the set of five ignition coils , spark plugs, and M6 hold down bolts for your. Coil on plug car

No idea why they are in the cam sensor diagram

Cam sensors live on the rear end of the cams ( left side of car, facing forwards

The other sensor is a crank sensor down near the top of the flywheel

If you have a VVT Solenoid on a cam, it will have a cam sensor., so you could have one or two
