    Oxygen sensor replacement

    I have a bad O2 sensor to the 2nd and 3rd cylinders.  I have ordered the OEM part as well as downloaded the service manual. However, the service manual does not appear
    to address replacement of this (based on my PDF search - its 715 pages).  Been told all you have to do is  drop the radiator and switch them out. Could it be that easy ?
    Appears you may have to have some dexterity to do this as well from what I could find via a forum search here.  Thanks in advance for any advice.

    It does cover it and it looks simple.  Section 4 -74 for the sensor and 2- 21 for the radiator tilt.  Let me know if you need the picture from the manual.

    Pleasure.  It does seem too easy!  Take it when you can get it I guess!  If you don't mind reporting back letting us know how it actually went, it would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

     Hello all,
     Just an update on that o2 sensor. I lucked out and was able to get this replaced under warranty.  Took mechanic
    about 90 minutes to replace. Apparently not as simple as I presumed it would be.  Anyways, thanks for everybody's input.  Safe rides to all.

    Very rarely is as easy as they say, years back had an Opel and needed to change the starter motor, Haynes book of lies said.
    "remove three bolts and slide out"
    Said nowt about the exhaust and engine mount that stopped it sliding out  :789:
