Question about 1999 Suzuki Vitara
Just dis-connect the electrical plug and unscrew the old sensor. Once out, screw the new sensor in and connect the plug. If the new sensor doesn't have an o-ring on it near the thread it'd be a good idea to put some thread tape on it to make sure oil doesn't leak out. To remove the old sensor and intall the new one there's actually a specially socket you can buy that has a slot in it for the wires. It can also be done with a spanner but the sensors can sometimes be very tight. Be careful not to let the spanner slip as it may round off the nut or even cause personal injury.
