    Default Lambda Sensor

    Hello.

    Can't remember if this is my first post so hi incase. Been reading the site for quite some time now.

    I've recently had the engine light come one so I had the codes read (would have been cheaper to buy reader than go to thurlow nunn but oh well, lesson learnt). It turns out the error was from the lambda/o2 sensor although the fault was not present at the time of reading.

    What I need is help finding a new one, probably about time to change it anyway. They quoted me 9158918 for the part number but I cant find that part anywhere. Could someone help me find the part I need somewhere on the net (or less than £145 which is what they wanted)? Its a Vectra C Club 1.8 04 plate.

    Cheers in advance for any help.

    Have a look for your car at the Partfinder at http://www.ngkntk.co.uk/ if a NGK one will do you. They are a good brand and I never had any problems with the one I fitted to my Astra some years ago. Call your local motor factors or search online for prices once you have the part numbers.

    Note that your car looks to have 2 sensors - one before and one after the Cat - so you need to know which one(s) is faulty.


    Personally, I'd avoid the 'generic' sensors which are sometimes available for slightly less money than a model-specific part. One of these will be OK for your car but will come without the proper wiring connector so you've got to fit the connector from the old sensor to it or snip the connector off the loom and connect the wires directly, or something like that.

    Talked to some local motor factors. The small local business wants £65 inc vat, the big nationwide one wants £75. Go small businesses. These prices are for NGK ones.

    There are these on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-LAMBD...ht_3141wt_1307

    But I don't know what the quality will be like.

    That'd be cool. Could the weather effect it? Its not come back since it was cleared. Then again like I said its probably worth replacing anyway as it has a effect on economy and engine running.

    Is it an easy job?

    I'd stick with the quality brands - it's less likely you'll be back under there soon to replace the failed new one. The last one I changed was back in the days when you only had 1 and it was under the bonnet. I had no problems replacing it though so you should be OK if you have the necessary tools and a way of securing the car in the air while you work underneath.

    The recommended way is to get the engine hot then get the car jacked up and disconnect the battery negative terminal. Then trace and disconnect the wiring for the sensor you are replacing before unbolting the sensor itself. Screw in the new sensor making sure the gasket is in place and there is high melting point grease on the thread (good sensors will come with this already smeared on and with a plastic cover over it to stop it getting wiped off in transit).

    Finally torque the new sensor up (the torque setting for both sensors appears to be 30 Nm for the 1.8 petrol engine) and refit/connect the cabling correctly before reconnecting the battery and testing.

    That sounds fairly straight forward. Does it go straight into the exhaust? Will a normal torque socket wrench fit over the sensor?
