Cam Sensor Issue

I have a 07 cobalt, 2.2 engine. About a week ago the check engine light came on. Hooked up a scanner and the codes recieved were P0340 and P0341, which are related to the cam sensor. I went into my local auto zone to buy the sensor, the sales guy told me the car requires two, but he could only find one on the diagram. I bought the two, replaced one thats beneath the oil cap, but I cant find the other. Does anyone know where it is, or if the car even requieres two?

There's a crank positioner sensor by the starter. There's one cam sensor pressed on the intake cam and the one by the oil cap that correlates with the intake cam

If you still can't locate this, I can certainly check with my internal resources. I would need you to provide me with the last 8 digits of your VIN.
