O2 sensors in exhaust

Maybe this has been covered elsewhere, and if it has, i apologise!
I have just bought a new exhaust and cat pipe for my mini one, it was blowing at the flexi joint.
Planning on changing it early next week, but from prior experience i guess i will struggle to get the lambda sensors out of the pipe!
I was planning on replacing both while i am at it, are they both the same? Or are they different sensors?
I see some on ebay for £30, should i be wary of them? Or will they be ok?
Thanks

Hi ya

You may find when you come to do the job you only have one O2 sensor on your mini one it was normally only the cooper s that had two. The one post cat normal has a blanking plug in it.
I have changed a few and never had a problem getting the O2 sensors out, just use something like plus gas (penetrating oil) and the correct tool should not have a problem

The hardest bit about changing the manifold is undoing the nuts at the cat joint again a good penetrating oil and heat normally fixes it but I have had to cut a couple off.

Thanks for your reply.
I have the new exhaust, and have seen the 2 holes, will be giving it all a good squirt later today in prep for fitting later in the week.
Thanks for your advice, hopefully the sensors come out ok!
Thanks again

Hi ya not a problem
they only make one exhaust for the first gen petrol minis all have two O2 bosses on yours there will be one sensor and one blank.
The manifold is a bit of a fiddle to get past the anti roll bar but it will come out if I had to remove the upper heat shields but that only a couple or nuts.

This link may be of help to you
