How easy is a Lambda Metre to fit?

Has anybody ever fitted a Lambda/Oxygen Meter to a GTV?
I had a garage run the car through their computer and there was a prob on the Oxygen Meter.
I have a 2000 2.0litre GTV TS and wondered how easy it would be to replace this meter.
I have looked at a picture of this lead and it seems pretty much like a plug in job.

Not sure I fully understand your question. Do you mean you want something separate from the upstream,downstream, O2 sensors fitted to the exhaust system?: One of those constant monitoring display packages? Plug in type, to the OBD sixteen pin plug?: Just that I would guess.:

You will probably need to get a wideband lambda sensor to get any meaningful readings. Meters that run on a standard narrow band sensor are notoriously innacurate.

I assume it is an Air/fuel ratio meter you are referring to?

Re: How easy is a Lambda Metre to fit?

Think what soup means is that after computer diagnosis he foud out that the lambda sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If this is the case, then yes, they can be changed. Just don't buy those cheap ebay universal lambda sensors, they last only for a week or so... Go for the original Bosch sensor.
As for the change - the sensors are usually nicely rustet in their threaded seats. When I swapped exhaust on my GTV, used to heat up the thread with gas torch and then the old sensor could be removed Be very careful with the extended leads, dont cut or damage them.
