Q: how long does it take to replace a radiator? on 2001 Mazda Protege

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The radiator is leaking along the plastic top. The hoses are not leaking. I would like to change the radiator myself.It appears to not be too difficult to replace. Is it?

it is an easy job. pays 2 hours in a shop but allow double the time. make sure you change the thermostat and put in new fluid.

Thanks, A couple of parts sites say it ia a very difficult job but it didn't appear , on the surface, to me to be too difficult. I will change the stat and fluid and hoses too.

Thanks again
