you have to find out which o2 sensor you need first. when you find out which sensor by getting the code with an obdII scanner. it will say o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1 or o2 sensor bank 1 sensor 2 (#1 is in the exhaust pipe closest to the header or exhaust manifold assy, #2 is also in the exhaust pipe but is after the catalytic converter) buy the correct part based on the code. replacing it once found is simple. remove the 2 12mm nuts that hold it in, slide it out of the pipe, remove the old gasket, and unplug the sensor from the harness. then replace the gasket, put the new sensor in where the old one came out, install and tighten the nuts, then plug it in. clear the codes with the scantool or by removing the negative battery terminal for a minute or so then replacing it, and you're all set

How do you replace the O2 sensor on a 96 Saturn SC2?

Cut the wire, unscrew the old oxygen sensor then replace it with the new one and finally, connect the new wire, making certain that you follow the manufacturers wiring diagram. To find the oxygen sensor, look at the exhaust manifold, then follow it down to where the manifold feeds into the headpipe. The oxygen sensor is the part that screws into the exhaust and has a wire connected to it.
