Thanks for sharing your experience. Not excited about removing all the cowling, cabin air filter, and other items just so I can remove engine cover .

So, when you removed the B1S1 sensor, did you have to remove anything that had to do with steering rack or tie rod? My Bentley manual said 'remove the right tie rod from the steering rack'

Also, was removal of the sensor fairly straightforward --- or did you really have to work at it or use the big breaker bar?

I bought an off-set type sensor socket --- is that what you use?

Thanks in advance EFT!
