Airbag passenger sensor bad

Anyone have to have the airbag passenger sensor replaced?

I took mine in and they cleaned the connectors but did not solve the problem. Costs $200.

Took it back and they say the passenger sensor in the seat needs replaced. $500 part $250 labor

Should they give me a $200 credit toward replacing the sensor since they did not fix it the first time?

If they diagnosed the problem and told you that cleaning the connection would fix the problem and it did not, then they need to lower the labor time on the new repair. They should also not charge you a second time for diagnosing the problem.
This is exactly what happened. First diagnosis was that cleaning would fix it as they see it quite a bit on the Gen 1. They did not charge me for the second diagnosis. However, they were going to charge me labor to install the new part.

Have not heard back if they received the part in yet to schedule the install.
