Presuming you have good DIY mechanic skills a straightforward job.
Do you have the necessary tools for the job?
Whilst doing the job replace the auxiliary belts as well.
Remove the right hand headlamp, coolant header tank, front bumper and panel for access, if you don't you will really struggle getting the belt cover off, you need it off anyway to drain the radiator.
Use a puller for the high pressure fuel pump pulley, don't be tempted to use the shaft to push it off, they can be very difficult to release from the housing, there are no hidden fixings, the pump does not require timing.
Ensure you have the correct torque figures for your motor, as there are a few variations.
