Default I need a 6-point 22mm Ring Spanner

Can anyone help?

12 point no good, I fear it might slip.

6 point socket no good, except open socket for injectors and the like might be ok, but I think they are too expensive, unless you can buy them seperate...<goes to check>.... Hmmmmm some of these prices aren't too bad, maybe it will do.

What about a 22mm impact socket? 6 point and thick walled.

Edit: just noticed your looking for an open socket.
Imagination is a mental faculty that serves as a coping mechanism for those who can't or won't accept reality - unicorns and dragons and wives who don't nag, are all figments of the "imagination".

Can't suggest a six point ring spanner, even slogging spanners tend to be 12 point on the small sizes.

Craftsman make 6 point combinations, but mainly a US brand.

Wall drive seems the way to go, maybe Facom OGV?
Kennedy KEN5823220K is a wall drive 22m combination spanner. 11.43 inc. from Cromwell Tools

Alternatively the Metrinch types can be good, but it's a bit of a lottery if it's tight or loose on the particular size you want.

It's an oxygen sensor.

I think a walldrive-ring or an open socket would be best. 22mm 6 point ring probably does not exist.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Ahh, why didn't you say ? :rolleyes: You can get special sockets for them...

e.g. http://www.justoffbase.co.uk/22mm-3-...-Draper-DT-OXY

However, the sensor body is pretty tough, boss (the bit on the exhaust it screws into) is usually stainless steel, and they are supposed to be fitted with anti-sieze... I used to harvest them for the DIY-EFI crowd (Yep, homemade fuel injection ) from scrapyards, and very few gave me any trouble. A good quality 22m open ended spanner and a sharp smack with a deadblow got most of them out. I did pick and choose cars where it was easy to get to though

Just spotted the last one on this page http://www.cats-direct-shop.co.uk/lambda-sensors.php
Looks a winner to me - I'd buy one... if I owned anything that ran on petrol at the moment.
