You should be able to view the VSS from the opening the yellow arrow is pointing to in the picture (below and to the right of the thermostat - use a flashlight its 6-8 inches below and behind where the radiator hose connects to the engine.), or if you really get in the engine compartment beside the firewall and look down and a little to the right you can see part of it a foot below where the air intake hose was removedand and about 6 inches in toward the engine.

It is changed from under the hood. Not easy to get at, but I was able to change it by using a 3/8 inch 10mm socket, 10 inch extension (two five inch extensions coupled), and a 3/8 inch universal. I only had to remove the air intake hose to gain access. The green arrow shows the thermostat. The red and yellow arrows show the openings that I was able to get a ratchet into to reach the VSS.

There is/never was a pic to my knowledge, only a good description of where it's located. Check youtube videos "honda vss replacement". One I checked was V6 but similarly placed to IL4.

good luck
