replacing the timming belt difficulty on 2004 Toyota 4Runner

how hard and how long should it take

Asked by for the 2004 Toyota 4Runner
It depends on your mechanical skills, available tools and service manual.
For a trained tech -with all the tools required- takes about 4 hours (the belt only) with all the timing components and water pump - about 6 hrs.
