This requires removal of the timing belt, a rather involved repair. I would suggest getting a Haynes manual, and if your vehicle has the 2.7L engine, I would suggest having the dealership do it. The 2.7 requires a very specific procedure to set the tension on the timing belt when it is removed and replaced and if it is not done properly, engine damage WILL result. We saw a lot of "I tried it myself" 2.7 jobs at the dealership I worked at. Not one was there because it was a success.
