Been there, done that.
Straight foreward, but be careful with the fuel pump. There is a gasket between the pump and the tank you need to be careful with.
Careful not to damage the gasket. If in doubt, put in a new one. (You do not want a leak there)
When you loosen the pump and want to take it out of the old tank, it can feel like the pump is too big to get out of the tank. Take your time and whiggle it out.
You should use a crisscross pattern when you put back the 6 bolts holding the pump. Torque to 0,4nm.
