Broken front right footpeg

I wasn't sure where to put this thread but that being said my front right footpeg broke clean off. Ive ordered a new one that comes onto the black mount since they're not supposed to be separable. It comes in tomorrow but behind it looks complicated to install. Anyone here have advise?

See how it looks like it seems to slide on from the top and somehow latch on through the center? Any guidance would be mich appreciated

I had a right front foot peg break off and all I did was use a small screw driver to slip off the spring clip at the one end and then tap out the pin till I could grab it and pull it out the remainder of the way by the head with a channel lock or vise grip. Be sure to look at the placement of the spring so you set it up the exact same way for reinstallation. I took a picture with my phone just for a quick reference. The installation of the new peg is just as easy. Hold the new peg in place with the spring in the proper location and slide the pin back in. I used a needle nose plier to get the end clip back in place. It took less than five minutes from start to finish. Good luck.

but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Yeah dude that pin comes out if you remove the retaining clip that is at one end. Look closely.
