O2 sensor removal

is there an easier way/trick to remove all 4? it didn't look like there was much space to get a ratchet in there. i've tried searching for a write up but haven't found one.

Re: O2 sensor removal

thanks for the response...i have all the tools already. when i was under the jeep it didn't look like i had much room to work. i was wondering if anyone had done the job and made it easier by taking things off in order to buy some more room.

Re: O2 sensor removal

I had to have a guy with small hands and arms reach up to one of the downstream 02's. Why are you changing all 4?

Re: O2 sensor removal

Have fun changing all 4. One of mine was seized and took some serious muscle in some tiny places to get them off.

I have 130k and never had a problem with any of them. No need to change them until you have a problem with them, it is not a fun job to do
