Has anyone come up with any tricks for plugging in the lower O2 sensor? Barely reachable and when you try to push the connector into it moves away from you. Must be some way to do it.

Have you tried and used a stiff metal coat hanger. Straighten it out and make a hook on one end. Thread the hood between the wires at the connector so you can keep it from pushing away when you try to reconnect the sensor. I make alot of connector tools out of coat hangers at the dealership for.
