Default passenger side heatsheild?

hi, i have done a search but have not really found any answers.
how do you take off the heatsheild on the passenger side exhaust manifold off without cutting it? i see that once i take all the bolts off, the only thing holding it on is the 02 sensor going through the hole in the heatsheild. Anyone know how to take it off without cutting my heatsheild off because i want to put it back on when i am done. Maybe i can unscrew the 02 sensor somehow? i tried with a wrench but it would not budge and i did not want to damage it.
thanks for your help.

You need a special tool to remove the O2 sensor. If you'd rather not buy that, then you can cut the heat shield. I used a Dremel, but you might also use tin snips or a hack saw blade.

The heat shield is still perfectly usable after being cut. You just cut a notch between the O2 hole and the nearest edge, so it will slide out without removing the O2 sensor from the manifold.

IIRC, you can just unplug the O2 sensor from its harness above the passenger side wheel well and pass the wire through the hole in the heat shield. I think. . .

I'm sorry, I guess I wasn't really clear. I hope you're not going to yank on it down there on the manifold. You'll probably just yank the wires out of your O2 sensor. Above the passenger side wheel well (around where your horn is, and stock boost control solenoid), the O2 sensor plug plugs into a harness. You can find it by following the wire up from the O2 sensor.

Autozone has an 02 sensor removing tool which is essentially a socket with a groove cut in it to allow you to remove the sensor without unplugging the wire. costs about 12.00. well worth it if you don't want to cut the shield.

jim juiz: were you able to get up there with the tool and unplug the sensor? it is a pretty tight fit to reach the sensor.
