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?

Wont latch when you shut the trunk lid or wont unlatch correctly with remote? Clean and lube!
dealer said I need a new latch at a total cost of $265! Can I do it myself or does it require access to their computer to reprogram, etc? would it require special tools?
Try cleaning and spraying it good with wd-40 first, worth a shot!

have it done and be done with it or lube it for free 1st and see if that helps
