My trunk will not latch normally. It requires repeated clicking of the remote. on 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis

If I purchase a replacement trunk latch, can it be easliy installed ? Does it require any special tools? Can the connecting cables be easly reconnected?

Try cleaning and spraying it good with wd-40 first, worth a shot!
