    My S3 has thrown up a sensor 2 fault (as below). So i intend to replace it, however i've been digging around on ebay & the bosch website. The Audi part number is 06A906262BB however the bosch website indciates 3 different sensors but does not indicate which sensor is post or pre. Has anyone had to replace this ? i'm pretty sure the same sensor is used on a number of cars & you shouldnt need to pay the £100 odd through a dealer.

    i'm confused....

    This lists the 4 wire but without the plug ? it refers to the part off ETKA 06A906262BB
    Lambda Sensor LC8335

    This lists the 4 wire with plug for the rear
    Lambda Sensor LP40320

    ETKA states the audi part number ending BB as behind the cat

    get the one with the plug, you dont want to waste time trying to solder and seal wire joints.

    Is it easy to do the post cat lambda? Just ordered one from Bosch so intend to do it tomorrow or weds after work.. I'm guessing it's just the heat shield in the way? Haven't had a proper look yet to see if I can get at it!

    I replaced the b1s2 sensor on mine 2-3 months ago with a NGK one off ebay, much cheaper than the bosch ones, it's still early but not had any probs with it touch wood.

    Already had mine out, the heat shield isnt in the way, you cant miss it tbh. I would suggest spraying it up 24hrs before with wd40. I just used a spanner & hammer which eventually freed it up. Still yet to replace mine trying to cure a misfiring issue first then gonna clean it up see how that pans out.
