This is a relatively easy procedure. Remove the rear seat and backrest. Directly in the center of the fuel tank you will see a metal plate with 8 or so small bolts. Remove this plate and this will give you access to the fuel pump. Carefully remove the fuel pump and associated parts. You will likely want to have some plastic or a tarp by this step in order to remove the fuel pump without fuel dripping everywhere inside your car. From here you will have the general idea, as you say, of what needs to be done to clean the fuel pumps pickup mesh. When I did this I simply used some extra seafoam I had around to clean the screen. But I assume you can also use water as long as you allow it to dry before reassembling the pump into the fuel tank. Good luck
