Drive the roll pin out. It will come right out with the spring. Put the new one in, with the spring. Drive pin back in. Takes about 2 minutes.

It happens. Just knock out the roll pin. Putting it back in can be found here about a quarter of a way down. Putting it back in is a pain because you need to keep the forward assist depressed and the pawl needs to be in the correct orientation. I've done it, it's still a pain.
