It's not terribly hard to replace. It would take about 2 hours. There are very few diagrams published showing how it's done, but I could see what I can find in one more of my reference books if you think it would help.

please. That's what I was hoping for. Also, any issues with the factory anti theft system that needs attention either during or after replacement?
Expert:  Jared D replied 10 months ago.

It should just snap in. The security system - if you vehicle is equipped with one- is separate.
