Very difficult to perform in the car, that is assuming that it is the actual issues as the valve body has to be removed to gain access to the solenoid

Do you own LOTS of tools, a couple of floor jacks, or a hoist? I own a well stocked garage at my home, with just about every tool made. With decades of experience in turning wrenches, that's 1 job I wouldn't touch !
