Installing off road H pipe

I started installing my off road H pipe this afternoon and am having trouble disconnecting the harness from the drivers side O2 sensor. I can't reach the plug. Is there a trick to disconnecting the harness or gaining access to the plug?

Have you got the stock midpipe off? If you havent then unbolt it and lower it a bit and then you can get your hand I'm there

I'm not sure what are having problem with lol. But did you unscrew the sensor from midpipe. Then drop midpipe and unsnap the sensor up close to the top if the tranny.

I'm trying to unsnap the harness from the sensor. The slack is limited and I'm not sure I even have enough to unscrew it from the pipe first.

Can't you unscrew it from your pipe and take it off then the there will be nothing in your way.

Got it! I removed the cable adjust cover of the tranny. That gave me another 1/2" for my arm. There was so little slack on the sensor wire that unscrewing it was not a good idea. I think I'm ready to loosen the existing H bolts now. Whew

I'm putting my stock H back on now. Damn I'm cold, Lol. If I could get the O2 sensors to plug in, I would leave it on for a week while I'm off work. I need O2 sensor extensions for the rears. At least it fits, I just need to get me a new cat back and some O2 sensor harness extensions and I'll prolly just pickup some MIL eliminators and I'll be ready to run with it.
