they make a special socket or a 7/8 wrench i believe i forget the umm metric size. just get a pipe around the 7/8 wrench as a braker bar and get a friend to step on the header while u loosen teh son of the biyaach.

Go to your local auto parts store and get an O2 socket. Looks like this:

yeah you need a breaker bar and the o2 socket. IT would be the best if the header was back on the engine.

If it's not glowing orange, you're only making it harder for yourself

Hey man.

Just goto the local auto parts store and get a O2 Socket. Its like 7/8s. I got mine for $5. No need for a breaker bar,I got mine loose no problem. If you can,put it back on the car..let the car run for like 2-3 minns...long enough to get the mani warm to "loosen" up the sensor,slip the socket on and it'll come loose. Pretty easy. Dont forget to put some antiseeze on the new one

Do it when it's warm.. also spray a lot of bolt loosener and let it soak in there for a little bit. I did it but it took a LOT of leverage to get it to move but it finally did.

MUCH easier to do it on the car btw.

theres a thing called liquid wrench, it works like wd-40 , but its purpose is to make it easier to take bolts off, i use it on areas where the bolt has been exposed to lots of heat, such as exaust systems, you could get it at your local kregen, or hardware store
