Looking For A Tensioner

So I finally got around to fixing my airbags and I must say its has been problem after problem.

First I Put them in.
Then The PAD Light Burns out
Then I get Code 18 and Find ONLY my passenger Pre Tensioner Needs Replacing

So....Where can I get one? I cannot find them on ebay. The j/y's newest ranger is a 97 so thats no help. Anywhere other than the dealer?

How much can I expect to pay?

The problem is usually the connector for the pretensioner under the seat. I fought with mine quite a few times before I got the pins slightly bent just right to stay connected.
It's a crappy plug.
Search the site for "airbag codes" and you should find a bunch of older posts about it.
