I've never been one to shy away from tearing into a car but this job looks like a bit more than I'd care to do for fun.
Now that I know about the crash sensor placement, wouldn't it be wise to remove it rather than risk dropping a solid/heavy object on it? Sure would hate to be the guy to turn the key upon completion if the sensor got tagged
