Thanks, ***** ***** are they listing this as an upstream (besides the fact that this is upstream of cat) makes me think there is a downstream o2 sensor, and is the OEM a single wire?

Because there is only an upstream sensor on this car. On the later cars they also use one behind the converter which would be called the downstream sensor.

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

And yes, it is a single wire sensor. The part number I gave you is for the universal sensor. You will need to cut the wire and crimp it to the existing wire. The OEM sensor is part number 002 542 12 18.
