I know from experinece...

You may as well buy another oxygen sensor now so you have one for the day that happens... ebay and amazon are the cheapest source.

Thanks for your input

Actually, I left some extra lenght of this wire in the upper engine bay. I did recently a recalibration, I just pull the cable prior to unscrew the sensor. At present time, no problem. However I believe your experience and the fact that it will become harder with past time.

Good suggestion from you to buy another one and to keep it for futur.
