I took the suggestion of a previous reviewer to bend the new part in. But instead of using pliers to remove the old part, I tried bending it to get it out. This was so that I could see how much force would be necessary to bend it without breaking it to get the new part in. I bent it in the middle and was able to get it unhooked from one side without too much force. To get the new piece in, first I made sure I had it lined up correctly. Then I inserted the circle over one of the side prongs to hold it and gently but firmly bent the piece in the middle until the circle on the other side could slip over the other prong. It was not bent enough to stay bent, just to compress it into the space and have it spring back to full length.
