CPS replacement

2001 F250, 7.3 2 wheel drive.
What tools are needed to replace new CPS? I carry a spare but forgot what tools to take other than a throw rug and flashlight.
Thanks, Marvin
PS, I bought a new Gray one from ford. 31dollars.

Wrong forum, but a 10mm box end wrench or socket w/ratchet usually does the trick.

I'm guessing someone moved your thread for you. 10mm socket.

Don't you need a small screwdriver to pry the old one out with?

"Don't you need a small screwdriver to pry the old one out with?"

I didn't need to. It's just an O-ring on the sensor and the hold down bracket of course. If it's caked with grease/dirt - ??

What they said ^^^^
I keep a box wrench and a small screwdriver to help it get past the o-ring indent. I also use the screw driver to help pry a little to disconnect the harness.

The bracket pivots so you should be able to start the sensor out by pulling on the bracket. A screwdriver can be handy for the connector especially if the block is hot. I try to only use my hands on the sensor so I don't damage anything removing or installing.
