It is relatively easy to do, you will have to remove part of the intake assembly over the rocker cover and loosen off a couple of bolts for the heater water line, there is one very tricky rocker cover bolt to get to right under the intake of the plenum chamber but it can be removed without disturbing any seals.
Do your self a favour and replace the seals in the spark plug wells too as they will have gone hard over time.
I went genuine Toyota for all my seals as I had read on various forum sites of non genuine seals either not fitting properly or leaking again soon after (inferior rubber compound I've read)
