There should be two screws that hold the limits switch in place.
yes you can reset the limit switch but they're only $15-$20,but before you replaced check your furnace filter, fresh air intake filter if you have them. usually dirty furnace filter or obstruction to the fresh air intake will make the high limit switch to stay open.
