If you are talking about where the manifold meets the heads that is a lot of work. If you are talking about where there are two flnges pretty easy. There are usually three bolts holding together. I would replace bolts, nuts, and washers if posibble. Just take the nuts off, then you need something big to pry bake the exhaust, a really big screwdriver works good. Remove your old gasket and clean the surface as best you can. Get a new gasket and use some silicone. I forget who makes it but when you go to an auto parts store they make a bunch of different types of silicone. This one is copper, it looks orange and has to be high temperature. Apply this stuff to bith sides of gasket, reinstall. Install bolts and tighten. Let sit for a little while.
