Go 2 pep boys for the wrench or borrow one form autozone. Shouldn't take 20 minutes. The primary is on the downpipe and real easy 2 get to, looks like a spark plug with wires coming out of it.

what do yall think about buying a 5 wire one with just the sensor? and solder it in?

^ that's the idea

^ that's the idea

So basically ANY 5 wire will work out?

Btw- everytime I call up Autozone/Oreillys, they keep on trying to tell me its a 4 wire.

^^^Same thing happened to me at Napa Auto. Tell them your car is a 2002 and they will have 5 wire which fits. These auto parts stores dont know shit.

Update: Called Oreillys asking for a 5 wire.
They found a Universal Bosch sensor that even has the 6 pin connector with 5 wires for $70.
It is the 17018 and they have a longer one which is the 17014. Can someone verify with me real quick that this is right?
