Well never heard about turning to left. Hard to get to as there is little room between firewall and block. Suppose with small hands you could reach down between the camshaft sensors and put hands on them however would have to pull engine to replace. They are just solenoid valves that distribute oil pressure based on ecm signals for adjustment direction and travel. Both camshafts are continuously adjustable. If an adjuster fails or seizes there is no camshaft adjustment. Car still will run but not optimally.
