Default steering wheel positioning sensor

i read on all-data that you need to pull the air bag, pull the column, and take apart the entire assembly to swap the sensor. But a post on here said the sensor swap was a 20 minute ordeal. Which one is right? Anybody ever do this? Sorry I accidentally posted this in the wrong forum, how can I move it?

Are you getting the "Service Stability System Soon" warning also?

I know it'* a few years later but hopefully this answer will still help someone. Yes it was giving me the "service stability system" message. All you need to is unbolt the end of the steering shaft, take off the old sensor and pop the new one back on. It'* super simple and takes about 10 min...just make sure you don't accidentally spin the wheel while the everything is unbolted because nobody likes a broken clock spring.

Any chance you could take a picture of where you disconnected the shaft and post it? I always thought it was a much bigger job to change it.

Take off the black panel under the dash. There are two 7mm bolts and a push pin. Once you get that off, go ahead and disconnect the 2 plugs. There'* a rubber boot over the shaft that you can slice with a razor blade. Once that is out of the way go ahead and disconnect the shaft. Disconnect the steering sensor and remove it. Then just reverse the procedure for installation.

It'* been a while since I did this but I'm pretty sure that'* all it was. It'* pretty self explanatory once you get down there and you can see what'* going on. Takes about 10-20 min.
