It's not that hard, actually.
If you remove the plastic cowl molding, the wheelboxes (which is what the pivots are called, AFAIK) will be exposed. Your two unbolt as a set. Just pop the linkage off the wheelbox assembly, and pop-in the new wheelbox assembly.
Brand-new is about $200 at the dealer, so I suggest getting one from a wrecking yard, or "auto recycler" as they're known these days. You might even be able to pick up replacement arms from the same car the wheelboxes came from. Wrecker parts will be a LOT cheaper!
