When I did my O2 sensor, I was too lazy to crawl under the car and I couldn't get a good bite on the sensor with an adjustable wrench due to the angle. I cut the single wire from the sensor, leaving enough so I could make a splice if I couldn't remove it, and used a deep well socket and ratchet from above. Very simple.

I think I'm going to be adding a crows foot socket to my tool box though as this is the removal method shown in the FSM.

I dont know I dont have too much time and the free time that I do have I spend at the shooting range so I'll probably just throw some money away and take it to the dealer while I get my oil changed too.

5 minutes? They'll charge you a minimum of at least 30 minutes to an hour at full shop rate.

5. Get the neosporin and a bandaid.
6. Install the new sensor and plug it in.
7. Drink beer.
And that doesnt sound like 5 minutes.
