is no longer working in the little girls computer next door. It's the same as an old one I have in the loft . Is it a difficult job to take out of mine and replace in her's.

No - it is simple to do. Just ensure that the jumpers are set the same on the replacement (ie as slave / master) as on the original.

Very easy job. Just take the faulty one out of the case a fit the new one.
Make a note of the jumper settings of the drive (Master/Slave)& make sure the replacement is set the same.

Pretty easy. Usually held in by a couple of screws on either side of the PC case. It will then slide out through the front when you undo these and disconnect the cable. Make sure the cable is secure at both the drive and motherboard ends before closing the PC case.

Take out of the loft first.
