    Icon7 Advice Requested - O2 sensor cost?

    Hey Guys!

    I've got my pug in at the mechanics at the moment and he told me the O2 sensor is shot (not reporting any output whatsoever).

    He told me it will cost $325.00 to replace (parts and labour). Is that a decent price? Could I get it done cheaper elsewhere, or could I do it myself (considering I'm not really that skilled mechanically - I've changed the oil, that's about it!).

    Thanks in advance!

    The O2 Sensor could cost in the region of $80-120.00. Try your local Bosch outlet or Ebay (which would be cheaper but slower to get)

    Usually you can fit these yourself. It's just a matter of access under the car usually The sensors normally just plug in. I dont know the specifics for your car -a manual would be helpful. Maybe others have done this anyway.

    As Pugnut1 said. Sensors are attached to a very hot part of the exhaust and can weld themselves on extremely tightly. You can get an oxygen sensor socket, with a cut-out down the side for the cable, that makes this job much easier.

    There's a margin on parts, a labour fee, and if the garage has any sense, a surcharge for work undertaken on a lift. Diagnosis has to be added to the R&R costs if the mechanic is to warrant their decision to replace.

    The tools Seasink suggested do the job well.
    With the 205 Si I have found that a large crank ring spanner does the job without having to purchase special tools.
    The two connector plugs (which you have to undo anyway) fit through the centre of the ring spanner.
