replaceWith error

I wonder if somebody can help me please. I’ve got this code, but it doesn’t work. I knw it’s stuck on the ‘$($newName).replaceWith(’<div…’ line but I don’t know how to fix it.

I couldn’t just completely replace the element because there’s also a unique number at the end of it (is div_name_X)

I changed the code to this in the end and it now works:
