It will be much easier to replace if you go the local parts store & buy the O2 sensor socket. It should cost about $10 & could save you a lot of trouble. It has an opening on the side of the socket to allow the wires to go through. O2 sensors can be very stubborn because they sit in the hot exhaust under the car which causes rust. If you can't get it out warm up the car first. The exhuast will be hot but the sensor should come right out.

It is very simple. It is located on top of the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Just spray with WD40 or equivalent and let set overnight. Should pop right out the next day.
