Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to remove and install the forward oxygen sensor. This is a 1998 Toyota Camry with 2.2L 4-cylinder engine. The only items you'll need are an O2 sensor socket which is available at 1AAuto.com, a ratchet, and a torque wrench.

Open the hood and secure the hood prop. Locate your up-stream O2 sensor and the connector. Squeeze the tab in, remove the electrical connector, undo the keeper to the wire, and allow it to hang. We'll be using our O2 sensor socket, available from 1AAuto.com. If you don't have one, you can purchase one from our website or use a 22mm wrench.

Install your O2 sensor socket over the sensor. We're using a 3/8" drive ratchet on ours. Break the sensor loose and remove it from the exhaust. If you're reusing the sensor, be sure that the wire for the pigtail doesn't get caught anywhere and tear.

Once the sensor's loose, you can finish removing it by hand. Start the sensor in by hand, into the exhaust, then using your O2 sensor socket, tighten the sensor down. Be sure to watch for the harness to make sure it doesn't get caught and tear any of the wires. Torque the sensor to 32 foot-pounds.

Reinstall the connector. Make sure that it clicks in and locks fully. Now, we'll use this retainer to hang the wire off the upper radiator hose. It's got all the teeth that lock together. Tighten it up.

To remove it, just release the tabs.

Reinstall the retainer to hang the sensor wires form the upper radiator hose.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit 1AAuto.com. Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
