An O2 sensor socket and a breaker bar. That's it.

Hey Marcus, I may need to do this soon as well, do you have a diagram of where the O2 sensor are located? I know 2 are pre-cat and 2 are post cat for a total of 4. Also do I get the O2 sensor socket at the stealership?

thanks

I've never replaced mine. Haven't yet had to. If you get the ones without the connectors, its probably as easy as cutting the connector off the sensor that you pulled off.

But after doing an Ebay search, I'm wondering why some of the 02 sensors sold without connectors that supposedly fit our cars have 1 wire, some have 2 wires, and some have 4 wires. Don't our 02 sensors have 4 wires that go into the connectors? I know autohausaz sells them specifically depending on their locations. But it looks like the cheapest place is Ebay.

I got no clue. You guys that have it figured out, be sure fill us in. I'm probably going to have to replace my 02 sensors sometime soon.

Just had mine changed at dealer under 8 year / 80K warrany (by law).

See this link (listen to the audio link as well.

The Mercedes and Audi O2 sensors are the planar type and seem to fail with gas that has to much ethanol.

The arrows point to the O2 sensors. Most automotive tool places carry an O2 sensor socket - Sears, Kragens, Pep Boys, etc. As long as the exhaust is cool, it should come right out.
