For those that "think" this is an "exact" fit. It does NOT state this on the product page as one reviewer said previously. It says it is a "universal" fit. If you want an "exact" fit, without having to strip wires (which is about a 30 minute job at best)- then you need to look on the product pages for: "direct" fit; NOT "Universal". I'm a 47 yr old woman who has had her mechanic replace several of these on various vehicles, so yes... I do know what I'm talking about. Plus, look at the price; it's cheaper than the "direct" fit so that's kind of a dead give away that you are going to have to Jimmy around with it a bit.

After much troubleshooting found part not able to work with the Honda car . Tried to save customer some monEy and time but after 4 hours of testing and checking found that 02 sensor was the problem. Was also told that these don't usually work by the parts guy at advance. Bought the one from honda and 20 minutes later it was back on the road and all codes were cleared. Parts guy at Honda dealer just laughed we knew !!!

Not a universal for today's cars, maybe in the 90s not today. Instantly threw heater codes even after checking and swapping heater wires. Don't waste your time or money.

    Best Uses

      Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

      Cost was cheap, however, because this is a universal fit you have to cut and re-wire your old connector. Instructions are hard to decipher. It's basically pictures with no written instructions. Next time I would spend the extra $10 for a direct fit.

          I have a 96 Saturn SC2 and had error codes for the TPS, EGR, and downstream O2 sensor. I checked the TPS and EGR and they seemed good. I probed the heater of the O2 sensor and found an open circuit. I was a little hesitant to splice this to the OEM connector but it was fairly easy to do. I reused the OEM expandable sleeving and also the metal retainer that held the sleeving to the original O2 sensor. I located the splice about six inches from the connector. I did not reset the codes but within two days of driving the service engine light extinguished without me having to service the TPS or EGR.

                Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

                The directions were easy to read and understand. However as usual I went online to view installation videos of this exact product. Bosh makes an excellent video that is posted on youtube. I found the universal connector somewhat tedious but doable. Hey its universal so what do you expect right... Anyhow after installation was complete with codes cleared in the pcm I found myself with a check engine light again. Turns out its not connecting. I removed the sensor, verified the wires were properly matched...and they were. Then I used an ohm meter to check my connections. They all passed. after seeing other reviews I am convinced this product does not work properly with my vehicle. My vehicle has 2 sensors, this is the first one the exhaust gasses would reach in the catalytic converter. Either Im doing something wrong which is always possible...or this part fails to work with my 2004 honda CRV. After reading other reviews I am inclined to believe I just thew away a bunch of money. Now, out of skepticism I will go with an ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT PART. I realize that when you develop a universal product there may be pitfalls...but why should I have to pay for there error?

                    Hi Daniel, glad to assist you! An upstream oxygen sensors are commonly located on the exhaust manifold or front exhaust pipe and vehicles equipped with OBD-II will have a sensor (or more) after the catalytic converter and these are known as downstream or rear oxygen sensors. You will need a separate two oxygen sensors for your vehicle, one for upstream and one for downstream. We do have an exact oxygen sensors available online for your vehicle and the part numbers are 15730 (upstream) and C5010380739WKR (downstream). Please enter your vehicle on our website and search for this part to check the fitment.

                    Hi Neca, happy to help you! You have Bank 1 and Bank 2 A/F sensor. Then you have two rear 02 sensors. So there is one before the catt converter and there is one after the catt on each side. The code P1273 is for the heater on B1 A/F sensor. I would ask where is the sensor located that they replaced. Bank 1 is the side of the engine closest to the fire wall. Bank 2 is the side closest to the radiator. To get more specific information on the location of this part I would recommend purchasing a Chilton or Haynes Repair Manual for your vehicle, not only will it show the location and also explain how to install, but you'll find it handy for many more projects on your vehicle. The repair manual part number is 72025.

                    A:

                    Hi Greg, glad to help you! You could locate the sensor(s) by following the front and back exhaust pipes connected to the catalytic converter. You will find a sensor on each side of the converter. If your particular model is equipped with double catalytic converter, there should be another pair of sensors attached to the second unit. These sensors have a cylindrical body about the size of a spark plug, and will have a tail wire and an electrical connector.
