It's quite an easy job but access, especially to the driver's, side is awkward. It helps if you remove the wheel liners. Make sure the car is well supported on the axle stands and accurately measure the length between the track rod end and some point on the track rod so you can re-assemble it to the same position. I seem to remember there is a ridge on the track rod you can measure from. At the very least count the turns when unscrewing the track rod end. Best to get the steering alignment checked afterwards to be on the safe side.
