I believe some guys have used a crowsfoot wrench. I didnt have a crowsfoot so i used a combnation wrench, it was a pain. I used the open end to move it a little, then i's use the box end side to move it a littl more than go back to the open side. It wasnt efficent at all, but its the only tool i had that would work, so i used it. putting it back in i loosened the exhaust bolts on the passenger exhaust manifold

Ahhh....a crowsfoot. I have access to one of those. I tried a stubby wrench, I can get a bite on the sensor but not enough leverage to break it loose. Thanks Fellas, I'll keep trying. (and not loose any more skin in the process)

Yeah, I used the rental tool from autozone and I think a 1" wrench on it. With those two tools it was a piece of cake.

I got an old combination wrench and used a cut off wheel to cut it down to size. It worked, but took a lot of muscle to get it done

Cut the wire off the old sensor. You should be able to get a box end wrench around it. Then you can break it loose. From there on out use the crowsfoot. You'll be good to go.
