Exclamation Front Passenger Seat air bag connector broken

My son was sitting in the back seat and put his big feet under the front passenger seat and broke the connector to the right rear air bag stress gage. The connector on the harness is broken also.

I have ordered and recieved a new harness, connector, and stress gage. Not sure if I need to replace the stress gage or not.

Question is if this is a fairly simple job. Anyone had this happen and fixed themselves.

Seems I should be able to just remove the seat, replace the broken connector, install the new harness and replace the seat.

Does this sound correct?

Guess this would be correct but I would recommend disconnecting the battery while changing the harness just-in-case. Good Luck!
