Shouldn't be too difficult. You may have to remove a cover on the bottom to access the pan. Drain the oil and take out the bolts holding the pan on. You may have to tap the pan with a rubber mallet or pry gently with a screwdriver to get it to release from the block (the gasket sometimes sticks). Inspect the gasket and replace if its damaged (although I'd replace it anyway since you have it off). Torque the pan back up to specs with the new gasket on and refill with oil.
