If your car was cold (like sitting overnight) you could be done with the process in 15 minutes. It's not hard at all. Your problem comes later if the leak comes back and you run into complications with your warranty. The oil cooler is a 500 dollar item. I'd rather have the dealer handle it so that I don't have any unforseen warranty issues. It's not worth the risk of a dealer saying that you caused the problem when you messed with it so they're not touching it.
