The injectors on that engine are really easy to change. The fuel rail is held down by four bolts, 2 on each side. On the side that you want to change, just remove the two bolts holding the fuel rail to the intake manifold. The injector is just held in place by a couple of o-rings.

However, we don't really have an injector problem on that engine. Why are you wanting to replace an injector?

Here is the procedure from the shop manual:

Relieve the fuel pressure; refer to Section 310-00 .
Partially drain the cooling system; refer to Section 303-03 .
Remove the power steering reservoir bracket.
Remove the three power steering reservoir bolts.
Remove the power steering reservoir bracket.

Remove the accelerator control splash shield.
Remove the three accelerator control splash shield bolts.
Remove the accelerator control splash shield.

Disconnect the fuel pressure regulator valve vacuum hose.

Disconnect the fuel lines; refer to Section 310-00 .

Disconnect the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve to exhaust manifold tube.
Disconnect the two differential pressure feedback EGR (DPFE) transducer hoses.
