Welcome to Justanswer ! my name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you with this problem
can you tell me what size engine is in the car ?
did you buy the new O2 sensor yet ?
and your looking to change the down steam O2 sensor correct ?
6-cylinder 2.5, got new bosch o2 sensor . down steam correct..
Ok Rey the down stream O2 sensor is shown here in this picture and is located on the cat convertor
you will need to get under the car
you disconnect the electrical connector to the old O2 sensor then with an O2 sensor socket or a 7/8 wrench you remove it from the pipe
then reverse to install the new O2 sensor
if the old O2 seems very tight sometimes some penetrating oil and let it sit on the O2 sensor will help in it being removed if very tight to loosen but most will just unscrew out of the pipe
02 sensor wires go into floor broad above, how to disconnect wire???
try to pull wire out but won't come out, don't want to breck wire connection. is there another way to pull it out???
will the plastic or rubber big plug the wire goes through pop down ?it should with a screw driver to access the connector
these are unplugged from underneath everytime
i removed the grommet already just pulling the wire connection out is hard, can i remove it by going on top thru the console???
it should have enough slack to pull it down out enough to unplug it
ive never had to pull a console or access it from inside the car keep working it at different angles it should pull down enough
will try your advise, will get back to you, see what happens...
let me know
i'm back, the wire inside the floor board was to short to pop out thee other side of the hole to disconnect. had to remove console to get to it. it's off.. but i thank you for your help...
im surprised the pigtail was that short I have always been able to pull them down
great job changing the O2 sensor
you saved yourself a lot of money by doing it yourself
