Intake and Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Locations on 2010 2.2L Engine

Hello, All,
New member here.
We need to change the intake and exhaust camshaft position actuator solenoids on our grandson's 2010 Cobalt with the 2.2L engine because of codes P0013 and P0014.
It looks like the intake unit is located on the left side of the engine below the oil filter. My question is where is the exhaust unit located? It appears it may be on the left rear side of the engine near the firewall and difficult to access. Can someone give us the correct location? Thanks for any help offered.

Both are side by side on the top of the engine on the left looking from the front, seated in the valve cover. Intake solenoid is toward the front and exhaust is towards the back.

Both those codes are for the exhaust actuator solenoid.
P0013 Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Actuator Solenoid Control Circuit ECM
P0014 Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) System Performance ECM
Arrow points to the exhaust.

Thank you, Coby 7. Just to confirm, this is a 2010 2.2 L engine. Will get into it when my grandson brings his car over.

Remove the engine cover and you will see them just to the left of the first ignition coil.

Did your problem stay solved? In my limited experience, it seems those actuators fail due to gunked up oil or debris in the engine.
