I've done it, it's not a 2 man job at all. Alternatively I've got my 4x4 hydraulic system for sale with a new bulb on it.

All you have to do is make sure the system is bled of pressure and then use an oil filter removal tool to undo the old one, then repeat in opposite.

No problem, yeah as far as im aware its just getting the old bulb off but i got it off fine with an oil ratchet.  I had the whole hydraulic system off the car when i did it which helped a lot and i put the hydraulic system in a vice to hold it.
