With 5 being the hardest and 1 being the easiest its a 3. You need some axel stands as you'll be working from under the car and you may need to remove the battery tray, airflow meter, throttle body and relevant pipes too. If you have a 1.8 you will need a cranked ring spanner.

Also note the order and positioning of the wiring to the starter motor.

Re: starter motor

I'd put the 1.2 16v as a 1/2 - very easy job.
