The wire is several inches too short for a 2003 Focus even though the online website says it's OK. Probably works for other Fords. I had to return it to get the "Alternate Fit" unit, which turned out to be the correct length.

        Drivers side, Ford Explorer, 1998 Vin=X (44%of motors) pushrod. Sport model. The cable is too short so I used the -19 in its place. O.E.M. Parts-some say Bosch, some say Ford. Try the alternate with the longer cable. Taking the tire off will same you a lot of time connecting this.

        Wire length too short for Ford Explorer Sport 2WD(1998) 6cyl. VIN-X pushrod.
        States exact fit but the length was several inches too short. I used the extra 15719 I had bought (no one seemed to know the vehicle only requires 3 total & the Haynes manual didn't state it either.
        But it worked the CEL (check engine light) went out & the 15719 seems to work.
        I would suggest the alternate part number for this vehicle & make sure the wire length is as long as the 15719.

            Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

            Nice quality but I noticed the protective wire loom sleve is shorter and not as thick a cover as the OEM. I ended up dabbing on some liquid tape around the exposed wire at the connector interface for some added assurance. So far works fine after 800 miles. Installed easy. The electrical clips matched perfect.

              The Bosch "Premium Oxygen Sensors" perform exactly as the original "Motorcraft" sensors in my 2004 Ford Taurus. It was hard to uninstall the original sensors (2) because you need to remove the radiator fans to reach the one in the front of the engine, and the "screen" in the bottom of the windshield wipers to make room to deal with the one in the back. Anyway, since I saved at least $400 dollars in labor and these Bosch sensors (Made in the USA) are working perfectly, it was worth the effort.

                    Hi Cowboy Roy, good question! A P0156 code refers to the Bank 2, sensor 2 or the downstream (post-cat) oxygen sensor on Bank 2. It is a four wire sensor. It is located after the catalytic converter on the right (or Passenger Side) of the truck.

                  On my 2005 Mountaineer I have a bad Bank 2 Sensor 2. I believe this is the downstream drivers side O2 sensor. Can you confirm and if so, which sensor is this from the ones you have?
