going back on subject was looking at your earlier posts and you said that the sensors had been done before you got it. If its got a recipt for it being done at a garage you might be able to take it and ask them why they gone again.

i would phone and ask how long they should last just to be cheeky. paying that much every two years is a bit much but then theyprobably lied when they said they changed all four. just the sort of thing i expect from any garage

well was a toyota garage so your probably right  Grin

I got the price down to �71.76 on special delivery so doesn't hurt as much. I'll order it on tuesday.

Wonder if its worth starting to spray some penetrating on the duff sensor or not while I await the sensor? As its on the manifold/cat down pipe, I know it'll burn off, but will it actually do any good in the process?!

Give it a spray and have a go at undoing it once its losed will save the job when the new one comes. I wouldn't have thought it be that bad if it has only been in for two years.
