    As dex140 says. If you have the right tools its easy. I did it so it can't be that hard!

    if its a Quattro then it can be awkward as the driveshafts get in the way so its quite hard getting onto the carrier bolts. Make sure you have the correct tools to do the job before starting as it can be a right pain!
