Unhappy Lambda Sensor needs replacing (DIY or Mechanic?)

After finding out that my high emissions are being caused by the lambda sensor and not the cat, i now need to replace it.

Does anyone know if I can do this myself of will I need a mechanic to do it??

I've searched my bentley manual and Lambda doesn't come up once in the whole thing. I've had a look into the oxygen sensor, but is that even the same thing??

please help me!!!

Do it yourself.
They are the same thing.

DIY on replacing O2 sensor:

Pelican Parts

Another one... no picture

Good luck!

Henri

Edit: Depending on what car you have, you may have one or 2 sensor(s). Be sure wich one you need to replace (or both?).
