It's only a couple of bolts, even I can do this! Undo the tensioner bolt being careful not to lose the other end of this to the undertray, it just slides up/down (and out) of the nylon guide. Undo the pivot bolts on the stud and push the stud out towards the rear of the car. There are 2 connectors, one is straight to the battery so disconnect the battery before you start for safety then you can remove this and there's a small wire to the dashboard telltale too which needs to come off. Once you've undone the bolts etc a little manoeuvring past the plenum and you're done :)
