Once I confirm the replacement sensor is correct, I ALWAYS cut the wire and use a socket. If there is room for one. My second choice is a box end wrench if there is room. A buddy of mine had a...

FWIW you could start throwing parts (and time) at it and quickly be at the cost of a needed tool (SDS). Or buy the tool and have it for the next failure. In the end you will be thousands of dollars...
