CEL P1486 and DMTL Replacement ('07 987 CS)

2007 987 CS with about 84k miles.

A couple of months ago I got a CEL associated with code P1486. According to my Durametric software, there is an issue (open circuit) with my car's DMTL. However, I'm in Dallas and my Google-fu that indicated that EVAP related codes can sometimes get thrown when there are large ambient temperature swings and/or very hot weather (both of which are common here). Thinking that might be the issue, I reset the light and carried on.

It just came back on yesterday after I started the car for the afternoon commute. If there is indeed a fault with my DMTL, how difficult of a DIY project would replacing it be? Is it a simple disconnect/reconnect job, or is it more involved than that?

Depends upon why the tank leakage module is coding; could be the module itself, or one of the tank vent system components.

Does this screenshot from my Durametric tool provide any useful information on the issue?

It says you have an open circuit; either an internal failure in the module or wiring harness issue.
