Thought I'd change the IAT sensor 'cause the bird has passed
100k miles now so it's probably long over due..

Anyway, where did you get the 25mm deep socket you need
to get that #%&(/= off?? Have searched every store in Sweden
but no a single one sells 25mm deep sockets..
Normal lenght no problem...
24 mm or 26 mm deep no problem.. But 25... NO WAY! *sigh*

Thanks!

25mm= 1 inch
kinda like 8mm= 5/16"
13mm= hair bigger than 1/2"
14mm= hair smaller than 9/16"
16mm= 5/8"
19mm=3/4"...ect

I'm going to mount my iat sensor in the airbox one day. My airbox came from a later model and had an iat in it, but it hits the overflow bottle.

The only iat sensors I ever saw bad were in 80's models Fords mounted in the manifold.

Wrenches and my car is a big no no... :D
If I don't have the right size socket I don't touch it..
Have used 'em before and the result :eek:
And then there is the problem with getting a wrench down there
with the intake on..

It's probably not bad just dirty since the intake looked the surface of the moon
and could give a reading that's a bit off..
And since I bought it and can't return it I might just change it..
:)

I thought the 1" socket would be to big since it's 25.4 mm...
But I've looked for those too.. No go.. *sigh*
There are plenty normal size 1" sockets but the deep one's is a different story.
Perhaps it's just easier to mount it in the airbox and rerun the wires..

Anybody know of a place that sells 1" or 25mm deep sockets online??

Take the upper intake off, it makes it much easier. When I switched to my Cobra intake, I believe I pulled off the IAT sensor with a pair of channellock pliers. Or a wrench. Don't remember.

What's wrong with wrenches? I use wrenches everywhere! My uncle has a big 3 foot long water pump adjustable wrench that he uses on 18 wheelers... I've used it to remove my fan cluch from the water pump.

From my point of view, whatever works.

Use a 1 1/16" 6 point socket. The 26mm will work if its 6pt too. I always use a big deep socket that kinda fits with an impact.

When you have a big fastener size isn't as critical. Look at it as a percentage of improper fit. You would have to be at least 1/8" bigger for it not to work.
