Beware of ebay sensors, unless you know from someone that bought the same type that all is ok.

I would recommend Just Lambda NTK, Suppliers of NTK lambda sensors by post.. for a pukka lambda sensor.

Where is it? should be able to see the lambda sticking out of the exhaust downpipes with wiring attached, looks a bit like a spark plug in the exhaust with wires.

On your 04 147 I would guess that there are two lambdas..........

Think the correct sensor is a Bosch, NTK mightn't have the right resistance, AFAIK.

Gavin's right - for the 147 it's a Bosch, the 145, 146,155 etc are NGK/NTK.
Either way better to get one made by the original manufacturer, too many horror stories about duff lambdas, and can lead to long times spent trying to find out what's up with the car.
