First, buy some PB Blaster from your local auto parts distributor and 
use it to get any rust disolved.  While I recommend NeverSeize for 
general purpose antiseize, the replacement sensor will have some already 
applied.  Just be careful to not spread it onto the tip.

Second, normally one uses a special oxygen sensor wrench such as Snap-On 
sells, but if room allows, a box end wrench will be fine.
