I thought that we used the same . . .
O2 sensor but when I got the replacement, the 'blue' cable was at least twice as long as the original one, thus my comments.
As I remember, I checked with the MB dealer and he said that this is MBs 'universal' replacement sensor that is now being manufactured.
Anyway, no big deal as long as you take the time to make sure it doesn't touch the exhaust.
BTW, I did mine on a hoist; don't know if you can do it with one wheel up. At best, you'll get a workout!
