These can be tricky because the cable can route in and out of body panels, covers, holddowns, etc. If you lack any patience at all let a shop do it. It is a matter of getting it unattached at each end and then remove and reinstall in reverse.

Thanks for your help. It took a couple of hours and had to remove drivers seat and a few other things. Everything went back together well and now I don't have to use my key to open the trunk. bkmw.
