they are easy to sort out

remove the wire plug
then remove the clip that holds the sensor in place
just pull the sensor out of the body then as you said
fit a new seal(0 ring) then refit it all.
make sure you clean all components prior to refitting them

you may find you will loose some coolant so be ready for the leakage m8.
