change starter motor on a 2001 suzuki vitara?

does anyone know if its much of a job to change a starter motor on a 2001 suzuki vitara?

my mum's has just gone, and she was quoted 2 hours labour to sort it.. now this seems a lot to me as they are normally just 2 bolts and the wiring on the side of the block..

i cant get across to see it and check it our for her as im working 12 hours shifts for the next 3 days. she can wait, but right now her car is stuck at the supermarket where my sister works.. and she lives about 40kms away from me. so i need to make sure i take the right tools, and have time to fix it there and then...

so is it doable in a car park?

im pretty good with cars, and have fixed most stuff myself in the past..
