Although I don't have a manual for your vehicle, most of the transmissions in the 2011-2019 years are configured the same way. There will be a vertical valve body cover in the front of the tranny case which needs to be removed, after draining the transmission fluid via the underside drain plug. After the cover is off, the valve body is removed, which allows access to the temp sensor and harness for replacement. After the valve body is replaced, the cover is reinstalled with either RTV or a solid gasket, depending on the model. Refill with TYPE4 fluid.

That's the typical procedure and also how it's done on my Forte, but I can't provide first-hand confirmation for your vehicle, so I strongly recommend trying to find a manual for yours, just in case there's something different about it.
