Anything I need to know about this?
Is it a straightforward job?
Any tips for tightening the axle/setting pre-load?

Pretty straightforward compared to bearing and race replacement in any other car. The only difficulty I had was finding a tool thin and hard enough to catch the lip of the race to drive it out. It is possible to use a socket as a drift and driving the race out with the socket and hammer.'

As for preload, if you have a dial indicator it is pretty straightforward too.
