So after seats are out, shift the cover up a bit, undo the bolts, and then lift her up discount the cable (is there anything tricky to this bit?). And install the new lot in opposite?

Seat out, lift up cover, undo the nut on the cable (counting the number of turns, or measure the amount of thread sticking past the nut), undo 3 bolts holding lever in, unplug wire from handbrake switch. Handbrake is now out.

Putting in is exactly the reverse.
