Not much to it. I find it very easy to lever the torque converter around with a large screwdriver until the drain plug is visible. Replace the metal sealing rings on the drain plugs. Fill the transmission a little over halfway, then start the car to get the fluid in the torque converter. Then finish filling it up. New pan gasket and filter too of course. Observe correct torques on bolts, especially the pan bolts. They are something like 7nm.
