Type /knock sensor F3 into the bestlinks, and this comes up, which may help:
- How to understand the piezoelectric knock sensor operation (1)

In addition, if that doesn't help, there 'should' be a photo of the knock sensor in-situ here:
- Where to find in situ pictures of common parts of the M54 engine (1)

Please help out by snapping a photo of each of the locations of your knock sensors so that the rest of us benefit (personally I've never dealt with them so this is the best I can offer).
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
