Question Trans mounted speed sensor 98 contour V6

My gf's 1998 ford contour has been having some problems. It is 2.5 V6 with the automatic.
-speedo stopped working
-shifts are very hard
-hangs in gear, downshifts early

Took it to a local transmission shop and they said the vehicle speed sensor is bad. Quoted $300 from them, called ford dealer they quoted $400. It seems to be about a $40 part on napa.

As I've never owned a ford or worked on an automatic I was hoping someone could give me some details. Is this a simple sensor replacment, ie- pull the sensor and undo the wiring clip. Or is it more involved?

It may be the same as on the V6 Mondeo - the sensor is replaced from below the car, and it only took a few minutes of work according to my dad who saw a Ford mech do it.
