    Lambda Sensors

    Hi Hammers

    AFAIK different Zeds have different numbers of lambda sensors
    They are normally sited in front of the CAT with (depending model/engine) others behind it.
    We need more info from you in order to be more specific.


    EDIT - r37 beat me to it!

    Looking at OEM you wantr one of THESE Part#8 11781247406 PROBE
    However, check by putting the last 7 digits of YOUR chassis number into OEM - I've just guessed at Aug 98 M44 1.9
    Coopers LINK want £177

    If it is the 1.9 Engine (Only other engine was a 2.8 during this period plus the M), then it is 1 Lambda Sensor and it is before the CAT, so in theory you can de-Cat and unleash the beast!:

    This is the cheapest

    I assume the screw in / out and plug in, never changed mine

    Does this sensor sense lambs? if so did all zeds get fitted with it or was it an after MARKET thing or just a Martian mod?

    I don't know, but all the wool :baa plus the fur balls from the Cat :eek:3 (closest icon to a cat) could be the cause of the restrictive exhaust system, what i do know, is that Lambda is the 11th letter of the greek alphabet.................
