How hard is it to change a bulkhead plate?

I have to change out the bulkhead plate on the firewall of my car. It was installed originally about 15 years ago. Problem is my interior is brand new and I don't want to risk getting fluids on the new carpet. Is this something a novice can do or do I need to take the car to a shop? I think the bulkhead I have is one that has a backing plate holding it against the firewall instead of the newer ones where your drill the individual holes into the firewall. The bulkhead I now have is 2.5 inches square and plan to replace with one 3 inches square. Any problems I should be aware of in removing it from the firewall? How hard of easy is the job? Any help would be appreciated.
