Belt is fairly easy after you have managed to remove the motor mount yoke and maybe you could do the water pump at the same time and the O-ring gaskets on the upper radiator hose housing.
The belt tensioner though is a royal pain due to ONE bolt that is hiding behind the power steering pulley and to loosen the power steering pump is another royal pain due to the turbo intercooler pipes being lodged in front.
If you do the belt tensioner and do remove the turbo plumbing and power steering pump, you should also replace the oil pressure sensor since it is hiding deep inside in that vicinity, and they do go bad.
Thermostat which is located on the complete opposite side of the engine hiding under the turbo is a major royal pain to reach.
