Basically, yes it is just a matter of pulling the wheels out. You will also need to remove some material from the top corners of the bogie sideframes where the wider spaced wheels will foul the mouldings. It should be fairly obvious exactly where and how much to remove once you have pulled the wheels out as the bogie moulding will not fit back correctly until the surplus is removed.
I have converted two as Peter Hill described. I added several spacing washers to reduce side play. Setting the back to back was by trial and error as the Dapol flange is wider than normal in EM. B2B was set at 16.2mm. Both run fine through my A5 and B6 pointwork.
Just done this conversion, used a GW wheel puller to pull the wheels out and you will have to shave off some plastic as already mentioned, but only took about an hour to do it. A quick fairly painless conversion, but the Class 122 Bubble Car is even easier!
