Labor cost of replacing Bank 1 Sensor 1 OS

I took a look at the location of the OS and I don't think I can replace it myself. How much should it cost to have it replaced?

What year jeep do you have? Should take less then an hour. Be sure to purchase the tool to remove it, makes life much easier. Also dont by a bosch after market one make sure you get the OEM from the dealer.

I can now reach it, but can a regular wrench tool remove it? Why they bother making a OS tool specifically for it? I already have the Bosch for $25, next time I'll buy Mopar. I want to go head and replace it now.

I have always used an adjustable wrench on them..

I also have used bosch without problem.. Just get the one made for your application and not the one you have to wire up yourself. I am not knocking mopar parts, but I have not had a non-mopar part other then a seal cause me problems. But why pay more when you dont have to. At this point I doubt I have many mopar parts on my jeep. (TPS, IAC, temp sensors, o2 sensor, are all aftermarket parts..)

i used an adjustable drop forge wrench and replaced the OS. Few days ago, diagnostics said it was OS bank1 sensor1. Now replaced, But the Check Engine light is still on. Must be another dang problem somewhere else.

This jeep gives so many check engine lights and I haven't had the jeep a year yet.

does whatever diagnostic tool you are using give you any more detail? a lot of the time it will give an OS code with a "heater" description of some sort which turns out just to be a fuse.

I did not know they made a O2 removal tool. I had to do a Search. If this is it, it looks like just like a spark plug Socket . this is it, correct? Id Like to add It to my tool box . I am of the school , work smarter not harder. Nothing better then having the right tool for the Job.

I believe a 1" wrench and 10 min did the trick for mine.
