That's the way to go :)
Since you are undertaking this task it would also be very very wise to change all the connectors to hi temp stainless steel ones rather than the cheap easily corroding connectors that are on there.
The Supco T1111c are ones to look for that would do the trick for a few bucks :)
Also those safety Rollout Limit Switches (KSD301) can be a little delicate so here is a link to a 5 pack for a few bucks should you damage one while putting on the new connectors:
TIP: Put the new hi temp spade connectors on the Rollout Limit Switch FIRST and then attach the wires to the connectors. This will help avoid damaging the rollout switch. My method is to put a connector on each tab. Then position the switch so that it is standing on one connector while the other is pointing up in the air. Then take a hammer and start tapping the top connector on and it will start going on while the bottom connector will also start going on, these things are a stubborn fit but MUST be put all the way on. You can then rotate and tap the other connector until they are completely on.
You do NOT want any wiggle what so ever on these connectors on the tabs or they will cause resistance which will generate heat which will melt down the plastic in the switch and burn it out.
Best of luck :)
