I changed the 2 s-belts and the v-belt in my 98 without much difficulty. It looked a lot more difficult from the outside than it actually ended up being. Usually the Haynes manual gives a decent description of how much work is required. All depends on how handy you are with tools as well. For what the shop was going to charge me for 3 belts though, it was well worth my time to do it myself, I saved about 200$ in labour, took me maybe an hour.
