Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to help you with your concern today.

The previous expert I see you opted out which means they can no longer reply, but I will be happy to pick up where they left off.

The previous expert sent you a pdf I am going to post that link again so that if you missed it you can access it easier: Please click here

In the floor you will find a cover, remove the bolts/screws which will allow you to remove the cover over the sender, you can then remove and replace the pressure sensor.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know. Thanks for using justanswer / pearl.com and have a great day!
