Throttle Body O-Ring Replacement

2008 9-5 Combi. I need to replace the o-ring between the throttle body and intake pipe. It's about as easy a job as you can do, except I ordered the wrong o-ring. The one I have is for between the throttle body and intake manifold, and is a bit larger than the one I need to replace.
My question is, since I have the O-ring anyway, how involved a job is it to replace, and what's the likelihood that it needs to be replaced? I would think that removing the throttle body isn't very involved, but I have a feeling that there's some difficult detail that I'm missing.
Thanks in advance.
