Default How to replace!?!??! NEED TO KNOW ASAP!!!

Hey guys, I found out that my oxygen sensor went so I need to get a new one. Thing is I don't know were its located, what I need to take the old one out and put the new one in. I was wondering if anyone had any picture guide or a good write up?

thanks

-Erich

first of all, don't complain it you dont get instant results, that will get you nowhere fast.

you need to learn to search

what cover are you talking about? the engine cover? you don't need to take that off for this.

the o2 sensor is located on the rear manifold. rent one of these sockets from Autozone to get the old sensor off, and to get the new one on. as long as you can get to it, its a very simple job.

did a seach just now and actaully doesn't help me out on my 2nd question I had...

already have the tool borrowed from autozone..

Now again...There is this cover covering the sensor plus the wires. It has these purple circle things holding them in. I don't know how to take the cover off. Am I suppose to get a drill and a bigger drill bit then the hole thats on the purple thing and drill it to break it off or no? and if so how can I put my cover back on without them..

No room to get on the hex with a normal wrench?

Those are just rivets. If you take the cover off, are you gonna want to put it back on?

i'd keep it on, it protects the o2 and wiring from anything you drive over.

you should be able to pull those out in 1 piece, if not, try and find some generic ones at the parts store.
