I've seen UTube vids, simple enough in theory but is it easy in practice or a nightmare of skinned knuckles and working blind?
I'd buy one of the tensioner lever tools.

Wondering whether to do it myself or get a garage to do it. Done plenty of work on cars in the past but less time free now.
If you buy the tool and you take the wheel arch liner out it's not a difficult job.
