Very easy. Just have a pole or something to hold it up, take the old ones off and replace. Here are the ones that I ended up getting.

I wonder if these, from Amazon, would work, too?

Late night pot lucks usually cause gas in bed.

This place has everything you could imagine...and reasonable too. When I was looking for custom spec (or unknown spec at least) to use for the front window rock guard they were very helpful and knowledgeable.
