I've just been told that I need to replace my oxygen sensor for my 1999 9-5 SE V6 sedan. I was told that it was the downstream sensor after the converter. The shop was calling around pricing the part out for me but I'm wondering if I'm better off buying the part myself and installing it? Is it fairly easy to do for a non mechanical kind of person and what should I expect to pay for the part and the labor if I choose to do it? Thanks

Can't speak for the V6, but I did it myself on my 2.3l with no problems. You'll need a notched socket and maybe some liquid wrench or WD40. The wires on the Bosch might need to be spliced into the harness if I remember correctly. The OEM, which I got, clips right in with no modification.

From Thesaabsite.com:
$115.43 OEM
$66.90 Bosch

We've found aftermarket O2 sensors can still leave fault codes showing on the dash. As Saabcog mentioned they will also need splicing in as opposed to a straight fit for the OE sensor.
