Bought and fitted one of these 2 years ago as the original had failed. Starting getting intermittent emission fault light, P1170 code, changed leads, plugs, etc but couldn't stop it appearing. Had to resort to a specialist who changed the IL sensor for a second had mazda one. The specialist diagnostic kit showed the IL and Mazda sensors produced different voltages under the same conditions so the IL sensor is not a direct replacement of the mazda one. Since fitting the second hand mazda sensor a few months ago I have had no further issues. Buy a genuine Mazda sensor if you don't want any hassle.
