Replacing idler pulley(s?) on WK HEMI

Bought mine used last Sept with about 60K miles on it. Right after the purchase, I replaced, amongst other things, the serpentine belt and the tensioner but didn't do the idlers.

I am getting faint high-pitched squeaking sound and thinking about replacing the idlers. Apparently, there are 2 of them. How much trouble is it. From what I remember from prev work I did, there's plenty of space in there to work comfortably ?

Well, there's only one. Very easy to replace. Mine wasnt shot - no play, rotated smoothly. Still swapped it out and of course, the squeaking, she is still there (starts a min or two after engine is started).

Some axial play in PS pump pulley, but no visible signs of leakage.

Will prolly just live with the squeaking for now
