Default How do I install 2000 Toyota Camry 2.2 L4 front "upstream" oxygen sensor

I have the check engine light on. show front sensor is bad.. found the part on ebay for $48. anyone with a 2000 camry know how to replace this. Do you take out the drivers seat or go under the car? Is it hard to see/ reach?

Upstream sensor is first sensor on exhaust system coming off the cylinder head. It screws into a flange on the exhaust system. You should be able to see to when looking at the exhaust system.

The best method of removal is to obtain an 02 sensor socket having a cut out for the wiring to clear the socket when installed.

Default Do you know how to get to the sensor?

can you reach it under the hood, under the car or under the seat?

Under hood.

Look at the exhaust system bolted to the cylinder head. Follow the individual exhaust pipes down to the where their join into one then look around for the O2 sensor screwed into what looks like a large pipe or large can area.
