He's not joking, it's really easy. Look at the factory service manual (available on this website) and follow the steps. You need a wrench (10mm or 12mm), a set of feeler gauges, and a flathead screwdriver. I actually cheat a little when I do mine. When I rotate the engine, I just put it in gear and roll the car a little bit. Easier than trying to turn by crank pulley bolt.
