Use a 1/4 inch drive socket set and several extension bars to get to lower bolts.

Remove the air box to give you more room.

Disconect all hoses, cables etc making note of how they are installed.

depends if you define difficult as

- something you can easily f**k up

- time consuming with a heap of swearing.


havnt done it myself, but have tightened the bolts. not diffucult, just a b**ch to reach some.

i think there is 12 main bolts to the head. then it wouldnt hurt to replace the gasket.
why are you taking it off?

If you take the fuel rail off first it is piss easy.

ratchet spanners if you dont have them dont even attempt it. most of the bottom ones come off easy with a ratchet spanner. top ones too.

and prepare for sore hamstrings.
