Question Oxygen Sensor Replacement

Hey guys... havent been around for awhile... i've been at school so i really havent had time to have fun with my e36, but with that outta the way, i have a little problem.

I purchased an oxygen sensor and am ready to install it, but i dont have much time to do it, and i am not around my car so i cant see what i'm dealing with.

So, two questions: What size wrench is needed to remove the sensor (mm)?
How much clearance is there (What is the longest wrench i can use to complete the task)?

Thanx in advance guys

i believe it's 22mm you can buy an o2 sensor socket or something or you can just unplug it and slide a wrench over it, there's sufficient clearance to get a wrench on it, if i recall correctly

so a 9 inch wrench should have enough clearance?
