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.

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.

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?

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

it looks like a pain. i'd rather change them now than wait till they corrode more. thanks

Throw some anti-seize on the threads

My 02's came with antiseize compound
