Default Yaw Rate Sensor ?

I've been having issues with my brakes and Nissan determined it to be my yaw sensor going bad after a diagnostic check. The stealership quoted me $700 to replace the sensor. I was wandering if I could just swap one out of another Z. I found a Z and its an 03 auto Enthusiast I believe and I have an 03 6mt Track. I could really use some help with this. I need to get it fixed because I hate almost losing control everyday when braking. Luckily it hasn't rained lately. Also, could someone do a quick how-to to replace it? I'm sure its easy. I just don't quite know where its located. I've never tore apart my dash yet, so I'm excited about that. Anyways, thanks.

If you are losing control every time you brake, STOP driving it until you get it fixed or pray to god you don't get in a wreck (which wont help) so get it fixed.

The yaw sensor is located underneath the center partition behind the handbrake... If you do replace it... ( not sure if you can ) make sure its the same year and model.

Sorry, I was being a bit melodramatic. The rear end just fishtails slightly when I brake harder than usual. It only last a few times and then the abs/brake/vdc/slip lights all come on and it doesn't happen again (I'm assuming the vdc is 100% off when that happens ). I've been having a hard time finding information on the yaw sensor and its compatibility with other Z33 models and was hoping someone could help me out if I sounded real urgent.
