The sensors are both the same, don't understand why your dealer is
saying different. Fairly easy to change, undo connector by pushing
down clip and pulling apart, then unscrew O2 sensor using a spanner,
though can be a bit tight at first. Replacement is the usual reversal
of removal. IIRC, the Australian spec '97 RR doesn't light the check
engine lamp when the O2 sensors go into fault, and the symtoms you
have could easily be traced to these. I'd change both at the same
time, especially if they've done more than 70K miles or so.
