It's probably better to get your usual garage to do it as getting the car to run again after building up can sometimes be a PITA.
However, if you want a go yourself.
FIRSTLY CHIP OFF AS MUCH CRAP AS YOU CAN BEFORE INJECTOR REMOVAL.
Injector removal and refitting, in itself, isn't really that hard. However once removed you really need to clean the inside of the holes meticulously after removing the sealing washer at the bottom. Plug all the holes with some bits of tissue paper, then chip off the rest of the crap you couldn't get to before.
Clean injector body (petrol carburettor cleaner in spray can is remarkabley good stuff. Spray onto cloth first.) paying particular attention to the sealing face on the bottom (taking care not to damage the fine tip that just protrudes), and then refit SEALING WASHER, then injector.
TOP TIP>> Apply a little grease (ordinary not copper grease) to the copper washer and then put washer on injector. Hopefully grease will stick washer to injector thereby helping you the get it in hole squarely.
REMEMBER TO TORQUE THE RETAINING DEVICE TO THE CORRECT VALUE AS THIS WILL MAKE SURE THE SEAL ISN'T OVER TIGHTENED.
Connect the pipes. Tighten unions, check round to make sure you done everything.
Start up. Should self bleed I think. Might take a bit of cranking
