Default Is it possible to Change the 02 sensor!!!??

I hooked a scan tool up to my truck and it says im running lean, so i figured i change my oxygen sensor. its located on my 93 3.0 right at the mid section of the engine on the back side, i can see it clearly from below but there is one too many bends and i cant get at it. Anyone have a trick???? please help

Try getting to it from under the front fender, mine has a rubber flap that you can lift up and the 02 sensor is right there, check yours out and see if it is the same.

why are you replacing the O2 sensors? try checking your fuel and ignition system first,your system telling you its lean, dont waste your money for O2 sensors
