I did this today. It took longer to get off the engine cover, cowl etc. as I had never done that before! Although the engine cover doesn't need to come off, it gives you loads more room to work with it off.

Tip: Use cable ties to hold the pipes up and out of your way
Tip: The O-rings on mine didn't come out with the solenoid. Make sure that if this happens you, remove them from the seal before trying to put in the new solenoid.
Tip: Use fresh engine oil to lube new O-rings to make it easier to pop them back in.

Thank you OP for this DIY as it helped me a lot!
