The toughest time I had was with the 5000CST.  Lacking the proper
socket, I had to use an assortment of hand wrenches which thankfully
had slightly different angle offsets.  On the crossflow engines, it's
much easier.  In both cases, once you break it loose, it'll spin out
pretty easily.

Why are you replacing the O2 sensor?  They're only good for 60k or so
(Audi recommends outright replacement at 50k on the 20vt if any
trouble is suspected), and relatively cheap, but they also shouldn't
be replaced without reason if you are troubleshooting a problem.

I searched briefly through my list mail and didn't see any prior
discussion from you about it?
