If you have the BW Technologies Gas Alert Max XT II, giving you an error message on the Oxygen Sensor, this is what you do.

Step 1 - Order the sensor from us here - BW Technologies Gas Alert Max XT II Replacement Oxygen Sensor

Step 2 - Open the unit

Start with removing the pump filter cover. Once removed you have access to the screw under the pump port. Remove the paper filter then go ahead and remove all the other screws. Notice that the pump cover has a plastic hook to help to seal the unit. Be careful in removing and installing the pump cover.

Step 5 -  Remove the sensor

Before removing the sensor, what you'll probably see is that the sensor gasket will be stuck on the sensors. Remove it, and install it back on the front cover. The oxygen sensor can be removed by wiggling and pulling straight out or by using a punch and pushing from the back.
