They aren't too bad but not a quick bolt on job. You have to pop the grease cap off the rotor, undo the castle nut and pin, and slide rotor off. 3 bolts for the shields, the calipers sit in the cutout and not affected. Then just a case of reassembly, maybe some extra grease for rotors and when castle nut just starts to stop the rotor from spinning freely, back it off a notch and put locking pin through. But yes, perfect time to do is when replacing rotors or similar.

As a matter of fact I got lost when I was just originally planning to change the stabilizer bar bushings, I ended up dropping the whole front axle. These dust shields are easy to remove once the wheel has been dropped, and you removed the rotor assembly (just as Aus78Formula said). A bit of paint, some cleaning and silicone grease on the rubber seal, and it's brand new!
