camshaft position sensor problem

I recently got a CE light code and it threw me the code P0340 and it says camshaft position sensor A circuit bank 1 or single sensor. I have a 02 Subaru wrx impreza. I recently ordered a new sensor, but I would like to know what the problem could be. Also, I'm having a hard time identifying where the camshaft position sensor is at. Can someone please pinpoint the location for me? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

I did a quick Google image search, and it appears that the cam position sensor is just above and behind the top cam on the driver's side. I would imagine there's also another sensor in a similar position on the opposite side of the engine as well, but I'm not sure. It doesn't look like it would be terribly difficult to access. Pop your hood and take a look.
