Customer Question
I need to change...

I need to change my oxygen sensor. Where is it located?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you located all of the vehicle's oxygen sensors? Are the wires leading to and from each intact and in good shape?

I haven't checked the wires because I am not sure which ones they are.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your BMW?

2005 X3

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X3 yourself? What have you tried so far?

So far I ran a FIXD check and it indicated an oxygen sensor problem.
