Front D44 w/Factory Locker Removal

I've read a bunch of good threads on regearing. I also have step by step instructions from Synergy, but they have me scratching my head. The Synergy instructions say to remove the carrier and THEN remove the locker indicator sensor. The install sequence warns about getting the coil ailigned so you don't bend the locker indicator sensor. It is not entirely clear to me how the sensor fits through the coil but allows the carrier to come out. Are the Synergy instructions wrong? Should the indicator sensor be removed before the carrier? Is there a slot in the coil or is it a hole?

Can someone who has done this clarify for me before I break something?

The locker position sensor must be removed/installed with the locker removed.
Here is a picture showing the position sensor plunger.
You can see why the sensor cannot be removed to the left while it is hooked over the locker plate.
A common mistake is ignoring this point, and the plunger ends up on the wrong side of the plate. It usually results in the locker not unlocking.
