Default V6 Oxygen Sensor

1995 V6. Anyone with suggestions on accessing the electrical connector for the oxygen sensor for the rear bank of cylinders? I think I can see it back there but can't reach it because of all the stuff in the way.

Is the V6 that much of a horror show ? (accessibility)
Combine this task with the rear spark plugs and other work in that area, or indirectly access the sensor connections at the ECU - this may be easier... if it is possible....

I had no problems getting the connector when I changed mine a couple of weeks ago. Just leaned over from the side, I could reach hand right down to the sensor itself and follow the cable up, although if you can't reach the sensor you should be able to see the wire easily enough.

If you're having difficulty identifying the the sensor for certain, just look from underneath. You'll need to get underneath anyway to pull the sensor out if you're changing it, so get under and the sensor is obvious, the thing sticking out the side of the exhaust tube. Should be able to follow the cable up easily enough then.

I don't think you need to get under the intake manifold at all to get to the cable, I didn't, unless I accidentally unclipped and left out the connector last time I changed the spark plugs.
