front O2 sensor (yes I searched)

Currently my Bosch sensor has gone bad after 3 years (rear has 02 cheater installed) so I ordered a new OEM sensor.

Motorcraft
5C5Z-9F472-BA
DY-1040

However I just tried to install and it was a few inches too short.
I have the CFM HFC installed, would that cause an issue?

Also I just hit a big pot hole a few weeks ago (bent a rim) and may have scrapped the cat on the ground during this event, would a slightly damaged CAT cause the O2 to go bad?

It's probably because the 02 sensor is on the other side of the cat. You might be able to get a few more inches by pulling the wire harnass connected on the fan shroud to get few more inches. I think that's what I did and zip tied the harnass so it wouldn't contact the exhaust.

When I replaced mine, the pigtail was a few inches too short as well. I just spliced a male and female pigtail together to make an extension.

That's odd, I've found just the opposite. My Bosch sensor wires were short and the Motorcraft sensor was the same as the original. This is on a CFM HFC as well.
