2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx Question: I need to know the details of changing out the hood latch on my Malibu Maxx

my remote starter will not work and the diagnosis at the dealer was to change out the hood latch/ switch. I need to know if this is going to be as simple as it looks. three bolts, the cable for opening the hood and a wiring harness. Do I need to remove the battery cables?
thanks, Yoder

    I think it is just as basic as it looks. I wouldn't disconnect the battery you loose memory for everything! There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
