The oxygen sensor was replaced due to the current one being original and suffering from carbon deposits. The old sensor came out surprisingly easily needing only a large crescent wrench. The new one was installed with liberal amounts of anti-seize to aid in its removal in the future. Special care was taken to prevent getting any anti-seize compound on the sensor itself. The new sensor required its single electrical lead be crimped onto the existing wire, once done heat shrink tubing was used to keep weather elements from corroding the wire.
