I would say it's fairly complicated. You'll have to remove that part of the top to get to the screws that hold the latch in place. It's doable though. You'll need to re-staple the top into place where you removed it and most likely have to get a new weatherstrip. The parts aren't cheap either. I got lucky and found good latches on a junk yard car. Someone else might know another way but good luck. It's been awhile since I replaced my top but if you have any questions, pm me.
