Oh right, I'd like to remove the CAT if I don't need it, mine definately has 2 sensors, and the wiring loom diagram notes these too. I wonder if I can delete it and just clear the engine codes, its not like its needed for the MOT. I guess it depends how the ECU reacts to one of them being removed as I'd imagine as one is pre-cat, and the other post it is so the ECU knows what is going on to the gasses etc. I'm not sure!

The car I used only had one o2 sensor too..

Mine has a front, and a rear o2 sensor, its in the wiring diagram and if you google it it comes up on diagrams of the exhaust system :confused:

On further googling I found this:

Seems the front is 100% needed, but I can remove the one after the CAT when I take it out of the exhaust system. ;)

Going to check my pinouts on the wiring incase it was missing, but when i stripped the car it deffo had one sensor and couldnt see a location for another. What fun.

That's a great piece of information. I have 2 o2 sensors as well. Thanks for bringing that up

Good link. Dreading plugging my ecu in God knows what will throw up!
