Computer problem
1999 Subaru Forester 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 110000 miles

Could you tell me which O2 sensor needs replacing if the code readout indicates " Sensor 1 Bank 2"?
The engine type is EJ253 - AWZVB. Thanks.

Hello
Thanks for the donation

Sensor 1 refers to the oxygen sensor closest to the engine. Bank 2 refers to the side that the number 2 cylinder is on. Below is a firing order diagram so you know which side is Bank 2 of your engine..

So, am I replacing the sensor before the cat conv. Or after it?

Starting from the rear of the vehicle and moving towards the front, it will be after the converter. One closest to engine.
