Easiest to access to have front end up in the air and crawl underneath the vehicle to reach the rear manifold, exhaust pipe and converter. The O2 sensor is just at the end of the converter.
This confuses me more because one of your other expert, Peter wrote the following:
You are dealing with bank 2 sensor 1. This sensor is located in the front exhaust manifold. Attached are a coulpe of diagrams. This is a heater malfunction in the sensor. The computer makes the ground to turn on the heater. In some cases I have seen the sensor take out the driver in the ECU. The light blue wire going to the ecu should go from 12 volts to 0 volts about 2 to 5 minutes after the engine starts. The 25 amp afr heater fuse needs to be check also. Let me know what you find. With all due respect to Greg he is not correct on the location of the sensor it is NOT in the back exhaust manifold by the firewall that is bank 1, bank 2 is the front exhaust manifold. That is where the senor is for the code p1155.

This is what autozone says:
(refers to Bank 2 Sensor 1) for Toyota Sienna 2002. I am confused as to which one to beleive. Looks like I'll have to check each sensor separtely before I replace any!
A/F Sensor-21 (Bank 2 Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Malfunction
A/F sensor heater circuit or ground circuit is open A/F sensor heater power circuit is open A/F sensor heater is damaged or has failed PCM has failed
Autozone uses the generic obd2 codes, which are not the same as manufacturer specific trouble codes definitions.
The listing I have given you from several sources are all Toyota Specific trouble codes, but I would advise to call your local toyota dealer to confirm
The whole information was wrong. It was the Bank 2 Sensor 2.
Bank 1 sensor 2 should show the OBD code of 1135 and NOT 1155!
All the above mentioned brand specific codes were wrong!
