Took me about 2 hours and probably the same to put one back. Access is via the inner wheel arch, then the belt has to come off followed by the power steering pump. Others have said drill a hole in the wheel arch lining and then remove by the inlet manifold. It's not difficult, just a little time consuming. David.
