This product was purchased to replace the downstream Oxygen sensor on my father's 2002 Subaru Forester. I removed the old sensor and took it out of the package only to realize that in order to use this I'd have to cut off the old harness and rewire this sensor to it. That'd require me to do more research to make sure I connect the right white wires and would require me to (at the least) solder the connections and shrink tube the connection. Adding one more variable (i.e. a poor solder joint) to this repair turns this 20 minute job into well over an hour. This is not worth it and I'm returning it and paying the $40 difference for an OEM replacement (such as Part No. 13469). If you don't mind the extra work, go for it. I don't want any more work and just want to plug and play.

      Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

      Very difficult to use on a 1995 pontiac transport. You have to splice together the wires to make it fit. There isn't enough room at the back of the motor compartment to splice any wires together. We were directed to this part by the online rep. Spent more than we would have for a direct fit part. We won't take the online chat rep's advice.

        Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

        This part is not direct fit for my GM car requires cutting the wiring harness and fitting to their assembly per a chart. This chart includes Suzuki, subaru and geo cars on it. So this is misidetified as a direct fit part instead of a universal fit part.

        Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

        The sensor itself seems okay. However, the Posi-Lock wiring system is an example of German over-engineering. After installing and running the engine check light returned. I removed the Posi-Lock wiring system and used traditional butt splices, reset the engine code and all is well.

          Comments about Bosch Oxygen Sensor:

          Most cars already have a connector for the O2 sensor. This "smart connector" is extremely dumb. It leaves you with a large plastic block close to the manifold. It IS NOT COMPATIBLE with the connector on the car. Get the right part and save yourself lots of hassle. ARGH!!

                      A:

                      Bank 1 is the side of the engine that has the number one cylinder on it. If you have a 4 cylinder engine you won't need to worry about the bank number because you only have one bank. Sensor 2 means that it is the sensor on that side that is after the catalytic converter and NOT the one before the converter
