Car: 1996 Avalon XLS

I have P0330 code: knock sensor bank 2
I took the intake manifold off and there are 2 knock sensors, one toward the front bumper and one towards the rear bumper is bank 2 the front or rear side???

also how should i clean the grime on the inside of the intake manifold and entry of the heads? i'm guessing seafoam.

i already searched. sorry for what is probably a stupid question for some.

ALSO, i'm planning on just replacing that sensor (have a new one) and i have a torque wrench to tighten to 29ft/lbs. should that fix it? is there anything else i should do? any way to check if it's good before putting everything back together?

ONE last thing, how do i reset the computer to erase the old code to see if it comes up again.


THANKS!!!!! need help ASAP- dont want car apart for too long and have time to finish tomorrow.

Disconnect battery to reset computer, or pull AM2 fuse.
