Just undo the 3 nuts, undo the 3 hoses taking care not to loose any coolant from them (you'll loose only the coolant that is inside the reservoir) and then refit the 3 hoses using the new reservoir, screw the 3 nuts and refill the tank up to the Max mark (1/4"-1/2" above that isn't a problem).

Check the level as soon as the engine reaches its normal working temperature (It should be on the same level or a tiny bit above that) and check again next day when dead cold, just to be on the safe side.

Use a new cap and the same type of coolant that is now inside the engine.
