You need to have a steady hand. Those LED's are pretty small. Other than that its pretty much remove old LED, replace with new one.

remember and save yourself some time by making sure the little cut out on the leds are in the same spot as the stock ones once you remove the stock ones

this is a real great way to rip the pad off the board...

either use two irons at once, or solder braid to remove all the solder on one side first.
