wiper motor on 2005 Kia Amanti

I own a 2005 Kia Amanti, I am a single woman trying to find out how much it will cost to replace the front windshield wiper motor and if I can find information on doing it myself, could someone tell me the cost and if is something I can do without taking it to a shop?
