1999 Honda Civic EX - Squeaks after O2 replacement Sign In

I just finished replacing the upstream O2 sensor on my 1999 Civic EX (D16y8 engine). The problem is that after I replaced it I hear a squeak or chirp (exactly the sound that bird call makes, the kind you twist) above roughly 50mph. I didn't mess with anything else on the car. I went back and tightened the O2 sensor as much as I felt comfortable with but the problem persists. Any help would be appreciated - Thanks in advance!

The 0/2 sensor has absolutely nothing to do with the chirping noise. You have to look elsewhere for that.

Maybe the flex action of front pipe didn't take the force to remove the old sensor.

Cold engine, just tap on the pipe with a rubber hammer if nothing obvious is staring at you and create that noise and see what is wrong. You may need to replace that whole pipe, some a bit expensive.

Make sure motor mounts are good too as if the engine moves too much is just stressing the whole show, hard on exhaust parts if so,
