More intimidating then difficult. The weirdest part was the connector for the fluid reservoir on the intake. You lift the top part of the connector up then pull the line out towards the bottom, it should come right out. I sucked out all the fluid first of course. I used a 10mm ratcheting wrench on the torx head bolts once I broke them loose with a e14 socket.
My first write up, hope to get better the more I do.
