Question about 1997 Nissan Maxima
Is this a 4 cylinder or 6 cylinder? If 4 cylinder, it will be the sensor in the exhaust pipe closest to the engine. If 6 cylinder you need to follow the exhaust pipe coming from #1 cylinder an it will be the sensor closest to the engine.

bank 1 refers to the side of the engine that #1 cylinder is on , and sensor 2 refers to downstream , after the catalytic converter. , this link shows bank 1 on a 2001 nissan maxima V6 being on the firewall side . if you had a 4 cylinder it would be downstream after the catalytic converter .

gpk722000: the knock sensor is located under the intake manifold.
If you are standing in front of the car, look to the right of the oil filler cap and go more to the center of the valve cover. Now, if you look carefully below the fuel rail, you may be able to spot it and for sure, the wires coming from it.You will have to remove the plenum and the intake manifold to get to the Knock sensor.
In reference to the oxygen sensor: It is located on the side closest to the oil pan of the exhaust manifold as it points toward the floor. Nissan references the "right" bank as the one closest to the radiator,
Are you sure you need these parts and are not just throwing parts at symptoms? Sometimes even codes that are scanned and pop up do not necessarily mean a part is bad. An oxygen sensor as an example: I use my scanner, which is a lot more sophisticated than Auto zones, and it better be, for the 8 grand + I have spent on it. With it, I can actually watch the sensor operating. The sensor is a miniature voltage generator. If the heater to the sensor isn't working, it could be that it is not getting power to run the heating element, thus the code will pop up as a sensor problem.
If you bought the sensor from the dealer, you would have paid $164.65 plus tax for a part you didn't need!
The same is true with the knock sensor! Make sure you have a bad part and not a situation where a code is being thrown because of something else. Be honest. WOULDN'T YOU BE A LITTLE HOT AROUND THE COLLAR IF YOU WENT THROUGH AL THE TIME AND EXPENSE OF PULLING THE PLENUM AND INTAKE MANIFOLD JUST TO FIND OUT THAT THE SAME CODE WAS THROWN AGAIN WITH THE NEW SENSOR YOU INSTALLED?
I don't mean to rain on your parade, I just feel getting you a little damp is better than you getting soaked later HUH?

Bank 1 means it's on the same side as your cylinder 1
Sensor 1 is the sensor that is located before the catalytic converter.
