Oil Leak from Crankshaft

Good afternoon all,

I have a 2000 Rx300 and it currently has developed an oil leak from what I can tell is the crankshaft seal. I am wondering if anyone has already replaced this seal and how much of a pain it will be to replace?

I have already done both oil pans so I know that is not leaking, I was able to clean around the upper pan and lower motor to try and see where the leak was coming from so that is why i know that it is leaking around the crankshaft area. I could see a stream form from behind the crankshaft pulley and run down the back of the engine.

I know the part is like $5 and I am guessing that I will have to pull the timing belt to get to this leak, if anyone has done this before and has pictures or a helpful walk-through that would be great.
