TO replace the hood pin? Unplug, remove and replace. Its right at the top of the engine bay near the firewall so easy to replace. I really cannot believe you just asked this question.

you are refering to the alarm sensor. Incorrectly called the hood sensor in the smg troubleshooting thread

No, there are two hood sensors that are separate from the alarm sensor

Just short them together. If yours is bad, just cut the wire after the plug and short them together. That way it always assume the hood closes. Never see the point of it anyway.
