I think that's the one in the back of the engine. It's on the exhaust manifold, where the pipe flange bolts up. You might disconnect that, and then it should be fairly easy. Would have to be done from under the car.

Also, people, why do you (and others) CAPITALIZE every single word? It makes it really hard to read, and is just as annoying as writing in all caps! I used to erase every post like that when I was a mod on a computer related board. Erase and e-mail an explanation to the author. If he did it again, erase and no explanation.

On my '97 N* I leaned over the top of the engine and used a long extension and a crowfoot O2 sensor socket to get the bank 1 sensor 1 out. It's not fun, and I made sure I bought a AC/DELCO part. I let the engine warm up a couple of minutes, no more or you will fry your hand, to make it easier to loosen. Good luck.

96 Eldo with Northstar. My evaporator cover was busted up, had to drop the tray to replace it. later... got a error code for the o2 sensor.... Turns out some one had broken the evap cover when trying to remove the o2 sensor. I left the engine cool, hit it with some PB blaster over a couple of hours then used a claw foot on a 3/8" drive to remove it. After I loosened it I was able to remove it by hand. Tried several kinds of o2 sensor removal sockets but there just wasn't room for any of them. The claw foot was the only thing I could get down there.
