It can be done,I've done several. Thake's about 45 min if you have eyeballs in the tip of your fingers and the right tools! LoL! No need to drill any holes in cowl ,I use a oil sensor socket,1 inch wobble extension and a 10 inch wobble extension with a 3/8s ratchet. You can unplug the wire with about 6 inches of coat hanger with a small hook bent in it.
