Default V50 2.0 D4 5cylinder head removal

Folks I have a wonderful oil leak. I suspect it's the cylinder head. Anyone know how difficult or could point me in the direction of any guides please.

I have done heads before but not on "modern" cars.

Still have to locate exact location but head gasket seems most likely for two reasons. The flow direction of the leak (soaked from cyl head gasket downover) AND a con rod was replaced about 3 yrs ago and leak started virtually straight away.
Obviously I will still need to confirm before starting any work just wanted to get my head around what's involved ATM.
CHEERS

Sure it's not leaking from the rocker cover gasket?
