Hi there. Like any other mechanical repair, the definition of ’easy’ is relative based on the level of experience you have, access to the correct tools and detailed instructions. If you’re going to replace this component, I would highly recommend purchasing a service and repair manual for your Captiva Sport, as it will provide you with detailed instructions that will make this job much easier. I would also recommend replacing the electrical harness as well as the sensor itself, as about 50% of the time, the code is caused by the harness being damaged.
