Changed the sensor and it wasn't bad to take it all apart and replace it. About a hour and half to do it and now everything works.

Did you wind up having to take the dash out?

It must not be too bad if you got it done in an hour and a half. That's good to know for when mine pops out.

I know this is an old post, but I was just looking for some clarification. Was it just a matter of popping off that top dash piece, or was there a lot more to it such as disconnecting air bags and such? Or is it just remove negative terminal and go.
