Can anyone tell me if it is easy as it seems in this video? Most threads i have read say that you have to pull your whole front end off and get to it past the timing belt. Then i stumbled across this.

Correct me if I'm wrong , but isn't it different for 058 vs 06A? ON the 058, its a 10 minute job, what engine is yours?

2000 has an ATW engine, so you have a 058 block.

The 97 and the 2000 are different. The 97 is a quick job, the 2000 is a more involved job.

I'm pretty sure your wrong, still an 058. To the OP, best to just crawl under your car and look.
