    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.

      Used this to replace an O2 sensor on my 01 Jeep Wrangler. Got the job done but it wants to slide off the drive of my breaker bar.

        This tool is used to help with changing the Oxygen Sensor. It worked great for the purpose it was intended for, I had no problems with it. It really helped get the job done quicker than I expected to.

        Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

        Bought one of these yesterday. Lucky to have one in my local store. There was only one left in stick. Got home and it does not fit my 3/8" drive ratchet. The slot in the wrench I got was too small. It could have done the job. I had to return it and I got the Motorcraft Oxygen Sensor Vacuum Socket as a replacement. Depending on the location of your oxygen sensor, you might benefit more from this Offset wrench or the Vacuum Socket. Nonetheless, I am satisfied with the quality of Motorcraft. Definitely not the best out there. But for the price, you can't beat this and it is readily available at your local store.

        Piece of advice:
        To avoid possibly breaking your wrench/socket, rounding your sensor, and unnecessary frustration, spray some penetrating oil on your old sensor before hand and warm up the vehicle to loosen the old sensor before attempting removal.
        I sprayed WD-40 on my old sensor and drove around for 10 minutes twice. I removed my sensor with a regular ratchet, no breaker bars needed. It'll be a lot of help specially most sensors are in tight spaces.
        K thanks. Good luck!

            I bought this socket because it was the only O2 sensor socket that was available in my area. The quality of it is dreadful and doesn't have that "bite" to loosen the sensor , instead it just rounds off the head of the sensor. Just be warned and find yourself a higher grade tool.

                      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.

                        Worked as needed, maybe not as good as the professional grade, but it has lifetime warranty, and it got the job done.

                        This will get the job done. Only thing you'll want to watch out for is making sure the socket is well seated on the O2 sensor. Otherwise there's a good chance you'll strip the O2 sensor to hell. I suggest using rust breaker spray if you're working on O2 sensors that have been in place for anything more than a couple days. I used this to pull the O2 sensors off of my two precats and had little trouble with a healthy soaking of rust remover and a 18" breaker bar. I'd recommend this as a good tool to have in your toolbox.

                          Comments about Autocraft Offset Oxygen Sensor Wrench:

                          For years I used a wrench to remove my O2 sensors, but ran into a really difficult one in a really tight spot, so I finally purchased this tool and it made that job much easier. I think this tool should be in every mechanic's tool chest. I'd recommend it to friends and strangers.

                          Note: Sometimes you may run into a really stubborn sensor, so you may need to apply some oil and may even need to put some heat on it to get the sensor loose. Also, I always put antiseize on the 02 sensor threads and all threads for that matter, especially on bolts under the car so the next removal is always easier. These are things that some inexperienced DIY Mechanics may not know to do and end up damaging parts.
