    I got on my creeper and i see where the O2 sensor comes out of the exhaust pipe after the cat and goes up to a rubber boot attached to the floor of the cab. My new sensor arrives by fed ex tomorrow so i would like to know if the wiring connector is under the rubber boot or is it under the carpet and i have to get under the carpet to find the connector??? Thanks

    you need to get under the carpet thats under the passenger seat so start by opening your passenger side door and removing the piece of plastic thats about 3 ft long,4 screws hold it down. then lift up the carpet and youll be able to see the wires going under the seat. look under the carpet and youll be able to see where the connector is for the sensor, unclip it from the floor of the truck and youll be able to pull it towards you. thats where youll be disconnecting the old sensor and pluging in the new one.

    you should hit the nuts that hold the sensor down to the exhaust with some penetrating fluid a day or two before you go to remove them or they may be a real pain in the ass to get off.
