worth it

I've used other, more costly tools, and they've failed. This off-set O2 socket is the best I've workd with so far. It might be cheaper, but surely not in quality.

It broke!

My O2 sensor was a bit too tight, and this thing broke! Why don't they make these things out of steel or something?! See the picture to see how it broke.

NEVER USE THIS TO TAKE OUT OLD SENSOR

Pros

  • Ok to install new oxygen sensor

Cons

  • Never use to take out old oxygen sensor

Best Uses

    Comments about AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

    NEVER use this wrench to try to take out oxygen sensor. It doesn't fit snugly on it and it will just round off the corners. Snip wires as close as you can and use a deep well 22 MM socket. It's ok to use this wrench when installing the new oxygen sensor though.

        Have a couple of o2 sensors needing changed on different cars. This socket, with a 3/8" breaker bar and PB Blaster, made the removal easy. Luckily, I had easy access to each sensor.

        Comments about AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

        Purchased this tool to replace the 02 sensors in my neighbors 1997 Lincoln Continental. Fit perfectly and was accessible to front bank sensor 1. The only issue I have with this tool is that its not wrenched on both sides making it almost impossible to get the the second sensor on bank one. I was able to get the wrench into the sensor but the way the off set is I couldn't loosen the sensor because if the lack of room and torque. If the wrench was set on both sides it would allow I could have easily flipped it over giving me plenty of room to do the job. All in all it did the job and most 02 sensors I have changed were much more assessable then this one. I would recommend this wrench .

            You get what you pay for. Used 1/2 breaker and 3/8 adapter for this tool. This socket kept sliding off the oxygen sensor (post CC) even though I had enough leverage. Starting stripping the hex on the sensor.

            • Easy To Fit On Sensor
            • Easy To Use With Ratchet
            • Good Grip
            • Lightweight

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • New Sensors
              • Tight Access Places

              Comments about AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

              Used socket to install new o2 sensors on new exhaust. Installed exhaust under my Suburban first then installed sensors using the socket. Liked the feel of it, they way it fit the sensors, and how easy it was to fit the ratchet to it and turn the sensor. Seems like it would be way better than an adjustable wrench at getting old sensors out if I needed to.

                  Comments about AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

                  I did read some negative reviews about this product, but decided to get it anyway since changing an O2 sensor shouldn't be that hard, correct? I got the old sensor off just fine. Here is what I recommend so that there is no possibility of a negative outcome: do spray some PB Blaster or other penetrating oil around the old sensor where it joins at the exhaust piping and let it soak in for about 10 minutes. Make sure the sensor socket grips the socket well, you should hold the senor socket down with one hand so it stays tight and flush up against the socket. With the other hand move your socket wrench. If it is not moving you can take a mallet and hit the wrench a few times to loosen it, which is what I did. It didn't take too long for the old socket to come loose and twist out. Bottom line is if you know how to use this tool properly you shouldn't have any problem. Oh, and I read a poster who was crying about why this isn't made out of steel, the package actually says it is and it feels nice and solid.

                    Used this socket to remove an 02 sensor on my 2005 Dodge Durango. Access to the sensor was
                    restricted with several obstacles. This socket is engineered well to work in tight spaces.
                    I would not play weekend mechanic without one
                    in the tool box... Great Product !!

                        Hi BMWDB, I'm glad to assist you! This AutoCraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench - Part No. AC679 is universal and is not application specific. Its 7/8" inch (22 mm) hex fits almost all oxygen sensors. You would have to match one by size to what is on the vehicle that can be fabricated into its place.
