Default 02 PT Radiator needs replacement

Well, my uncle has an 02 Cruiser, 2.4 I4 (no turbo) and has a crack in his radiator...

what I'm wondering is, if anyone here has much experience with the PT and how tough it is to replace the radiator.
I own a 92 Plymouth Sundance, and just recently replaced the radiator on it, but the engine compartment isn't nearly as packed as the Cruiser's

any help will be much appreciated!
