    Bank 1 refers to the cylinders closest to the front bumper. Bank 2 is against the firewall. Sensor 1 is in the exhaust manifold ( near the cylinder head). Sensor 2 is after the catalytic converter. Therefore bank 2 sensor 1 would be in the exhaust manifold for the bank of cylinders closest to the firewall.
