Hi my name is Pete and I will be glad to try and assist you with this.I may need more info in some cases to help with answering your question.
Here are the instructions I have located for this hood switch/sensor.From what I can see the passenger side hood latch needs removed then the hood switch/sensor can be removed and replaced and the latch put back into place.
Removal1. Disconnect the battery ground cable.2. Release the RH hood latch.Remove the 2 Torx bolts.Disconnect the electrical connector
3. Remove the hood switch.
Installation1. Install the hood switch.2. Install the RH hood latch.Connect the electrical connector.Tighten the Torx bolts to 10 Nm (7 ft. lbs.).3. Open and close the hood to check the hood latch operation.4. Adjust the hood latch.Loosen the 2 hood latch Torx bolts.Lower the hood and check for alignment.Open the hood and tighten the Torx bolts to 10 Nm (7 ft. lbs.).Check for the correct operation of the hood safety catch.
I hope this info has helped and if you need anything else let me know.
Thanks for that information, but where is this located? Do you have a diagram?
I was able to locate a picture of this on line,it should be on the passenger side under the hood.
