S420 new owner

This delightful child whom I've named 'Greta' was leased for the first 3 years of her life (born in 1995), was then sold to someone for the next 6 years, was then owned by someone else for another few years, and I picked her up from a used car dealer for $4k. It's my first M-B, and I have a lot to learn. She ran fine when I test drove her, but then started acting up after I paid for her, and a specialist diagnosed a problem with her MAF sensor, which I am just beginning to try to extricate from her intake manifold. Will first try to clean it. Also, right after I took possession, the SRS light went on, and am thinking of sending it out to that place that rejuvenates it for some $50. Anyone here had any experience with the SRS light coming on and staying on? I can't get an inspection sticker like that, and I hear that the module is buried near the radio. I wonder how difficult it is to reach. Thanks for your comments, -Ken
