Thanks to all who posted photos and tips in this thread!!

Just replaced my driver's side cam sensor tonight in response to code P1084. Cleared the code and took it for a short test drive. Time will tell, but fingers crossed that the code doesn't return. After clearing the code previously (while researching the associated fix), the car would run anywhere from a day to a week before the SES light came back on.

Again, huge thank you to previous contributors for the detailed info!

It's perfectly fine to just buy the sensors from pepboys or autozone. Make sure you match them up with the VIN and get the right sensors for the right locations. There are 3 total. I chose pepboys simply because their parts come with a warranty. And I can appreciate that. I haven't had any issues since I replaced all 3 of my sensors. Total costs of all 3 wasn't even $160 so yeah dodge the dealer go to pepboys or parts store.

the dealer part numbers and the OER numbers are not going to match. Hence why I said use your VIN number to match up the parts with your vehicle. Of course a part company isn't gonna name their parts with the same number catalogs. Do this the same way you would look up which air filter fits your car. It's really not difficult at all.

I found mine on Amazon. They sourced the order out to a Nissan dealership and I initially got the wrong sensor (driver's side bank 2 #23731-AL61A). It was Amazon's fault not the dealerships but they sent me the correct one which I got in 2 days along with a return shipping label for the incorrect sensor no questions asked. Paid $100.31 which was the cheapest OEM replacement I could find on the internet. Local Infiniti dealer wanted $187, riiiight lolol. Only difficult part for me on the install was the clip on the plug is on the bottom so I just took off the 10mm bolt, removed the whole assembly and had plenty of room to turn the plug upside down.

If there's enough miles on the thing that the o-ring is failing then chances are the sensor itself isn't too far behind. Just replace the whole thing as PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE rather than it going out on the highway and becoming a REPAIR.

Because when it leaves you stuck in limp mode 50 miles from home on the side of the freeway you'll be wishing you had forked out the extra cash for the OEM ones. Aftermarket cam/crank sensors are notorious for short lifespans or simply not working at all. If you want to spend half as much for a part that has 1/4 the life expectancy that's your choice. Personally I chose longevity and reliability.

yeah that is true Iím just saying at bare minimum if you wanted car back on the road mines have lasted a year and a half at he time of car going through that I had no cash what so ever I had to scrap together money to get the parts I did let alone try and get the money for oem parts. Iím one for oem parts that was just my position and itís worked out for me, maybe not others...oem parts fail as well and they donít come with a lifetime warranty and all it took me was 20 mins to change them out if I had to go get another one from a local pep boys thatís closer to me then a infiniti dealer. Oem parts are best I will say that I just donít rule out aftermarket with a lifetime warranty
