My '01.5 S4 threw its first code today @ 44.5K miles...    
( awww... )    G62 Sensor trouble.   Looks like i got off the hook  
pretty easily.  VAG-COM output at the bottom of the email.

 From what i have read on the net, this is a fairly common problem  
(especially w/ the non-green versions of the sensor).  About $10 in  
parts and probably 30-45 mins of time after the engine has completely  

  Has anyone replaced theirs?    Thought i would ask before i attempt  
it this weekend, in case there was something i need to watch out for.

ps, already checked the connection to the sensor..  seemed solid and
