There's a HOW-To in my haynes manual. it doesn't look too hard, but it looks like you need a hoist of some kind, or jack the car up on stands to get right under it.

1)Jack up the car
2)unplug the O2 sensor connector
3)unscrew the sensor with a wrench
4)screw the new one in
5)connect the new sensor
6)you are done.

I can't remember for sure what size of the wrench you need, but I believe it's 22mm.

Not counting the time it takes to jack up the car, the whole procedure should take 5 min or so. That's assuming that you can
get the old sensor loose right away. You might need some penetrating oil, and a wrench with long handle.

thanks,

22mm?! Jesus, I guess I'll be heading off to Canadian Tire to get some tools.

Where exactly is the O2 sensor located? Is there a cover, etc. What should I look for?

Thanks,

Bryan

O2 is located off the manifold just before the cataylitic. you cant miss it. its sticking out of the down pipe with a wire on it. follow the wire to the connection plug and you should be on your way

Thanks for the info Mark. Any idea what size bolt it is exactly? Have you done this yourself before?
