2G How to install the REAR oxygen (o2) sensor on a 2G

The rear oxygen sensor on the exhaust for the 2Gs may look intimidating to remove/install, but in reality i actually quite easy. Take a look at this step-by-step guide.

1.) jack up the car and get a huge wrench that will fit the oxygen sensor. PREP yourself.
2.) Remove the oxygen sensor. This may take A LOT of effort, but believe me, it comes off. Just sit there and apply a lot of force, pulsating help.
3.) You'll see the o2 wire runs up through the underbody and a little plastic thing will be there protecting it. Yank the plastic part off so that you should now see a hole underneath your car.
4.) Open your driver-side door. Roll the seat all the way back. Remove the driver-side SIDE CONSOLE plastic piece so that you can remove part of the carpet.
5.) Fold the carpet back. There a few (i think 4) plastic screws holding the carpet in place. Remove these and fold the carpet back. Now feel along side of the console area and ou should seee the o2 sensor wire. There is tape holding the wire down. Find that tape and REMOVE IT.
6.) Now jiggle the wire a bit to make sure what you're grabbing is the actual o2 sensor wire.
7.) Go back underneath your car, and yank the wire towards you. The o2 sensor connector should come out through the little hole. Unplug the connector.
8.) Bolt in your new oxygen sensor, mate your new o2 sensor connector, push the wiring back inside underneath the carpet, and then put everything else back into place.

** Removing the carpet to get to the wire may seem a very intimidating, but it's actually very easy. Take your time, have patience, and save yourself some $. =)
