    don't know how this tool lools like (any link?) but I have a second header lying in my garage and just out of curiosity I wanted to remove the sensor. Didn't get the bugger out and gave in at the end.


    Goodbye M3, you served me well.

      Bosch Oxygen Sensor Tool - $18.95

      Makes removal of the old sensor and installation of the new sensor a snap. Turns easily using a 3/8 in square-drive ratchet or socket extension. The slotted design is made to fit over the sensor wire. For use on all Bosch brand oxygen sensors.

      seems like a lot of money to spend for a one time thing...

        You should be able to buy one for under $10 at an auto parts place.

            Oxegen sensors are all standard sizes. The removal tools are available at any autoparts store.

                I have one of those (like the one in the picture), and though it's a bit pricey it has come in handy quite a few times.

                  i got my socket for like $4.99... and the sensor itself for $29.99. worked like a charm, as long as you solder the connection.

                        yes i bought a universal. theyre cheap, and except for getting your hand in to loosen the sensor, its an easy swap. chopped up my knuckles pretty good.
