expansion tank replacement

I have a little leak I think from the coolant expansion tank on my 325i. It looks pretty easy to replace, lots of room not like the e46. I have a haynes but it doesn't cover this. Any reason why I shouldn't attempt it? I guess I wouldn't have to drain the whole system, and perhaps plug any hoses, fit, fill and bleed?

Ok had another look and seems really simple only for a couple of krypton factor clips.

Any pointers on how to undo these before I jump in? Just a screwdriver in the loop and prise off? this is at the top of the tank



This is the clip at the bottom, same thing?
