if its the cylinders for the rear drums then i would say its easy if you like jigsaws :}

i watched the mechanic while he changed the ones in my old mk1 and it was very easy to change the actual cylinders themselves, 2 bolts and the brake pipe nut ( so long as the brake pipes are not rotted - thats the only bit that concerned him as he had been caught out with that one in the past and he said it was not a pretty bill for a simple job :} )

the only bit that looked a problem was putting the brake shoes back in correctly as it was a mass of springs & little bits of metal that hold everything together, but if you you could manage to do that then it should be a doddle, the only other thing needed to be done was the bleeding of the new cylinders and the job was done.

easy to do m8 ,but if youv'e not done brakes before pay somone or get a good m8 to help,if you do go ahead make sure you bleed both circuits and not just rear cylinders,if you don't know what i mean then please pay sombody to do it for you.
