Attempting to replace a canister purge valve (pictured)
Some of the instructions I've read say to disconnect the battery terminals prior to remove the electrical cable and removing the valve.
That seems like overkill. Could I not just unplug the electrical connection from the valve without worrying about the battery at all?
Or - does the risk in leaving the battery connected occur when reconnecting the electrical to the new valve?
I'm just getting my feet wet in DIY repairs and this seems like an easy enough fix. I hate messing with battery terminals so if I can reasonably, safely get away with not touching them (figuratively and literally) I'd be much happier!
