How to change an oxygen sensor in a Matrix/Corolla

* This is for a matrix xrs… but im guessing its the same for a corolla…

Well I’ve been having a CEL for some time now… And today I finally got a brand new oxygen sensor from Toyota. It was a really easy install, about 5 minutes I would say.
The victim…

On the passenger side… flip over the mat, right under the shifter/center console you should see this

while you are up there just go ahead and push the rubber molding down so it can be easier to pull from underneath.

remember to remove the clear plastic protector and carefully screw the new sensor back on. It should come with some grease or some anti-metal lock grease.
Make sure it’s really tight… and make sure you correctly insert the rubber protector/molding back in the hole under the passengers side mat.
Connect it

and put the mat back together just like it was…
Re- connect your battery and turn on your car
Check for any leaks
Lower it and run it around your neighborhood for about 5 minutes to check if any CEL pops back on
after it passes that test… Connect a code reader to check your results…

and your DONE!!! :D
