replacing BMW oxygen sensors

Is replacing a 2001 BMW 330Ci oxygen sensors a reasonable DIY job?

If so, any advice?

thanks

Very easy job. You can get a special tool from Pelican Parts that makes it easy to do it without dropping exhaust or banging your knuckles. You should have a total of four to replace, two on each bank.

All you have to do is unclip the wire, then unscrew the sensor. Screw the new sensor in and clip the wire in.

Thanks tpb31,

Do you perhaps know what the tool from Pelican is called? Any particular brand of O2 sensors?

Also, can faulty oxygen sensors be responsible for rough idling?

Thanks in advance,

Jan

Here is the part # from Pelican Parts PEL-4491B

I haven't experienced rough idle from a bad O2 sensor. So I am not sure. Sorry I can't help you out more. Check with the guys at bimmerforums.com they know their stuff.
