Unscrew the axis screw on the left side of the magwell. The mag release will come out 1st. Hold on release to keep the spring from flying out. Then pull the pin back until the BHO drops free. Replace by making sure the axis pin is on top of the spring of the BHO. Push in till it is retained, then put the mag release back in with the hole aligned and the spring in place. Use a drop of blue thread locker on the thread.
