    What are spearing lines?? I have changed many O2 sensors on this car, your mechanic doesn't know Fords, take it to a dealer where they are familiar with the repair procedure.

I merely cut the two bolts in the front and went to my local u-pull it for the 2 bolts. When I installed them, I went up from underneath and put the nuts on the top. The back 2 remained the same.
