dude i had that problem, had to change it out kuz car kept stalling when it got hot! its right behind your main crank pully (the biggest pully on your engine)
well, at least it is on my 3.3, should be the same tho!

you get to it thru the passenger side wheel well. you need a harmonic balancer pulley removal tool.

yeah that would be a good idea, but we used an impact wrench (the air powered drill thingy) to take the bolt out and used a hammer and crowbar to get the actual pully off lol, it worked and took like 3 minutes

yes you might have to take off splashguard to see the big crank pully, the largest one. yes you do remove it, just make sure you get it back on correctly too!
