The biggest thing is you have to have a special pulley puller and installer tool. You can usually rent them from an auto parts store. Other than that it's just the oil lines and some bolts. You may want to make sure there is a diagram, as to how the belt goes before you remove it. Take a picture of it, or make your own diagram.
