go under the truck from behind the motor remove the heat shield thing (2 10mm bolts).then the icp sensor is right there.just unplug the connector and use a hollowed out 1 1/16 socket. and its a pita but i find this to be the easy way. the 1 1/16 socket has to be hollowed out inside to fit the connector to the icp in it..hope this helps

You can also cut a 1 1/16 box wrench in half to make it small enough to have room to remove the ICP.

I came at it from underneith the truck. I did not take off the heat shield bolts. I cut a 1 1/16 wrench down to a length of 4-5 inches on the closed end. I disconnected the pigtail from below. Put the wrench on the sensor and connected several 3/8 extensions together, taped a opened end wrench to the top of that and put the cut down wrench in the closed end portion. I used a small sledge to tap the extensions, loosening the sensor. I also removed the degas bottle to be able to change out the pig tail. The worst of it was the wiring. The sensor is not that bad if you get your hand up along the transmission. Hope this helps.
