The sensor is on the door latch, not like the older ones that were on the hinged side, simple push button.

So yes, have to tear door apart, BUT..............in most cases you just need to spray silicone, WD40 or similar lube in the door latch and the switch will start working again.
It is recommended to do this once a year, on each door
