The front air bag sensor on my 1997 sls is damaged. Can I replace it myself or can I disable the air bag system? The sensor has been removed. The light (obviously) stays on and I haven't been able to find another one. I'm also afraid that if I replace it incorrectly or get a defective one from an auto graveyard, it will trigger the air bag to deploy. I wouldn't ordinarily disable the air bag system, but it's already not working, so.
