It would appear that you are correct about that housing having to be removed in order to access the hose to pull to see/access the probe. The question I have is why do you want to do this? The '06 cars already have the probe optimally positioned (the service bulletin you are looking at is for the '05 cars) and/or a completely different and better probe. If your A/C isn't working well, the problem is most likely not this thermostat/probe.

PM TheViper if your A/C is not working well. He lives in Florida too and has come up with a bunch of mods that will allow you to have functional A/C, even in the summer FL heat.

I just wanted to see if the probe was in contact with the cooling fins as stated in the instructions.
It seams like a logical fix for the a/c.
One of the guys on here has an '07 that does the same thing. The a/c works for about 30 minutes, then he says it seems like it freezes up. So he turns it off for about 30 minutes, then turns it back on and it works for another 30 minutes or so.

What's the point of having an access panel if the whole front end of the car is bolted to it? It's not much of an access panel then, is it?
