1.8TDCI wet belt, is it a DIY job?

    Ford Galaxy 2010 with the 1.8 engine. Just about to hit 300km, with the top belt due for change. I will do the wet belt too, as there is no information as to when that was done.

    Is it a home garage job? I have done two 1.5 DCI engines in Qashqais recently which I didn't find too bad. I have a reasonable selection of tools (1/4,3/8,1/2 full sets, breaker bars, and a dewalt impact for the big bolts, with a good trolley jack and stands for lifting)

    Does it need special tools, or just a lot of stripping out and patience?
