2007 Hyundai Santa Fe - Need to remove top oxygen sensor on

Customer Question

2007 Hyundai Santa Fe - Need to remove top oxygen sensor on the back of the engine but it sits inside a circular shroud. Because of this shroud it sits in, there isn't enough for the socket to grab to loosen. I don't see a way to remove the shroud as it appears the sensor is holding it down. I have a picture to upload to show what I am talking about but don't see a way to attach it on the initial question. Also, i guess the other part of the question is if I need a special oxygen sensor socket to remove it.

Thanks, I'll take a look for this one tomorrow. Below is the current one I have now that just won't do it for me so hopefully this one will. I will let you know as soon as I get it on the chance it won't work for me to see if you know of alternatives. http://www.autozone.com/test-scan-and-specialty-tools/sensor-socket/oem-oxygen-sensor-socket/47738_0_0/?checkfit=true
