My front 02 sensor was stuck on there like a biatch. If your luck, vice grips will do the trick or a wrench maybe. Once you get it spinning, its just a simple install and remove.

Front manifold. Close to the firewall. The red wire is just a spark plug wire in the way, dont mind it

there is a special socket for removing oxygen sensors.. they make replacing one less of a pain... the drive on the socket is offset so the back of the sensor and the wire can stick out the back of the socket... its actually quite a nifty tool.
