    O2 sensors

    Whats the best way to get the damn things off? I have the proper socket, the one with the slot cut in it, and I use a long bar to try and get it off, but it won't budge, it just flexes the socket. I can't get a impact gun on it unless I take the exhaust apart to get space. I'm just about ready to take it to a garage and get them to put the ones I bought on it. Is there a secret, like getting them really warm, or doing some sort of rain dance while praying to a witch doctor?

    there is a funny dance that most of myfriends do...


    it starts with them driving to my house and dancing around my BBQ...
    they light it, dance around it, put food inside it, dance around some more...
    put a few $20s into my wallet, and after I eat the food, presto... sensors are changed...



    I hope you have alot of energy, that dance takes about 1 to 2 hours...

    have you considered using a box end wrench and persuading it with a hammer?

    I thought about it, but I don't think I have a box end that big. I've also thought about explosives a couple times too

    7/8 box end wrench.
    cut the old plug off if you need too in order to get the wrench on.
