Bottom Line Up Front - Does anyone have any tips before I swap out my F/R door wiring harness? I don't want to buy another one.

So, I put in a new window regulator into my '03 325i and broke the airbag connector tabs. That caused the SRS light to come on, it won't reset, and the code shows the F/R door connector (code was 10:06, I think) - no surprise there. I found a thread that shows what the connector is supposed to look like, and mine's definitely missing the shorting tabs. I got the part number from the old one (6 913 080) and ordered a new one because I couldn't find any on a popular online auction site. It came in today so I will be putting it on soon. First, I need to put new connectors on for the main speaker because I upgraded the OEM ones. I figure it's easier to solder on a bench rather than hanging off the door like last time. I need to get it done soon because I got a recall for the passenger airbag. I figure the stealership will try to charge me extra or refuse to swap out the faulty airbag if the fault is still there.

Before I start, has anyone done this in the past that has some do's and don'ts? I'd really like to not spend another $79 buying a new one. I'm not just going to swap out the airbag connector because I don't want to throw a high resistance code.

While I'm here, any tips for removing the airbag connector from the airbag without breaking the fragile tips? Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. Do you know if any of the other connectors are as fragile as the airbag connector?

Got it. Thanks for the reassurance. I'll try to take it easy on the connector this time. I've unplugged the speaker plugs multiple times when I take of the door panel. I thought I'd be doing it this weekend, but work let me know this morning that I'll be away. Oh well, hopefully next weekend stays open. I'll set up the camera & takes some pics to share (and for reference).
