How can I change the water pump on a Renault Trafic?

Is the water pump on a (2008 model) Renault Trafic van hard to change? It is a 2.0 diesel and I have some mechanical experience and would like to save money by doing it myself. Can you help?

A very difficult job because it involves the timing belt and probably requires specialised extraction tools. Do not attempt to DIY.
