coolant overflow reservoir on 2001 Chevrolet Impala

I have to replace coolant overflow reservoir but dealer says $31.47 part or parts store has $15 for universal. Should I try my luck on universal & do myself or suck it up and pay dealer price & shop labor? Is this hard for home repair?

Personally I recommend the original one from dealer. Its an easy repair- drain coolant out then disconnect hoses from the old reservoir. There are a couple small screws holding in place is all. Install is reverse process. I like the original one so that when you refill coolant you will know its at the correct level which is very important. So your looking at 31.47 plus cost of coolant.
