If you are reasonably handy, this is not a difficult task. The trickiest part is getting the lower hose off and back on to the radiator. You simply do not have any wiggle room so patience and a wooden lever is key.

While you are in there, you should also do:
- A/C belt and tesnioner
- Main Belt, Tensioner, Idler pulley

Depending on production date, or dealer retrofit, you may have the mechanical belt tensioned or the updated hydraulic unit.

Make sure you get the right one if you are planning to do this on a Sunday or if you parts pusher is not next door.
As me how I know :-)

One great upgrade to consider is the EMP Stewart High Performance water pump. At $200 it is not cheap but the quality is there.
