How much does it cost to replace an oxygen sensor in UK?

The cost to replace an oxygen sensor in the UK can vary widely depending on several factors, including the make and model of your vehicle, the type of oxygen sensor needed, where you have the replacement done (dealer, independent garage, DIY), and any additional labor costs associated with the replacement.
here are some general guidelines:

  1. Oxygen Sensor Cost: The cost of the oxygen sensor itself can vary. Basic universal oxygen sensors can be relatively affordable, while more advanced or vehicle-specific sensors can be more expensive. Prices can range from around £20 to £150 or more.

  2. Labor Costs: Labor costs can significantly impact the total price of replacing an oxygen sensor. If you're having the sensor replaced at a dealership or a repair shop, you'll need to consider the hourly labor rate they charge. Rates can vary from one location to another and can range from £50 to £100 or more per hour.

  3. Type of Sensor: Some vehicles have multiple oxygen sensors, including upstream (pre-catalytic converter) and downstream (post-catalytic converter) sensors. If more than one sensor needs replacing, this will affect the overall cost.

  4. Location: The cost of living and business operating costs can vary between regions in the UK, which can influence labor rates. Garage prices in urban areas might be higher than in rural areas.

  5. DIY vs. Professional Installation: If you have the tools and skills to replace the oxygen sensor yourself, you can save on labor costs. However, ensure that you are comfortable working on your vehicle and have the correct tools before attempting a DIY replacement.

  6. Vehicle Make and Model: Luxury and imported vehicles might have more specialized and expensive parts, including oxygen sensors. Similarly, if your vehicle requires extra disassembly to access the sensor, it might increase labor costs.

  7. Aftermarket vs. OEM: Aftermarket oxygen sensors might be more affordable than original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. However, the quality and compatibility of aftermarket parts can vary.

  8. Additional Repairs: Sometimes, replacing the oxygen sensor might reveal other issues that need addressing, which can add to the overall cost.
