I have a 2004 EX MT bought last year from a "dealer" [who wasn't] who bought this E from an auction. I paid under 5K and it runs fine [after valve adjust]

I discovered that the passenger airbag is missing...looks like someone was trying to maximize their profit. The wiring harness was cut.

The "idiot" light on the instrument panel does not show it, so probably it's been "fixed" too. No error codes show up but my scanner is very basic.

I have located a replacement from an OEM used dealer and need to know the pros/cons of doing myself. The replacement has the intact harness.

I know disconnecting the battery for several hours is needed. Dash is apart. Should I track back and pull the harness or just splice it?

Any other issues to worry about? I'm in Broward County Florida
