Removing timing cover

How simple is it to remove this? 3 weeks ago I replaced the water pump now I have to replace to cover due to it cracking. And I'm not sure how to do this. I'll read through my Haynes manual but I was hoping someone could break it down and explain exactly how to do it

Easy, the bolts holding the water pump also are the bolts holding the timing cover.. cept 2 bolts on the bottom of the oil pan, and i believe 2 others further down. Remove the power steering pump, a/c compressor, alternator, and fan clutch, and then take all the bolts off including the 2 on the oil pan, and it should pop out.

No , just the first 2 , maybe 3 bolts on each side towards the front .

Not mentioned was needing to pull off the harmonic balancer . You'll need the puller for that .
