Yes Its down the back of the engine/gearbox first remove the wiring plug to leave the VSS in full view, There is a silve pin/clip which holds it in place it needs to be pulled out towards the drivers side, be very careful they tend to break off then you are in trouble!! I broke mine off then had to go to the local garage who put the car on there lift to work from below and they managed to weld a piece on to what was left of the pin and eventually wriggled the pin out. New one's on auction sites tend to come with/without the clip. Replacement is straightforward.

Hope this helps
