    It's very simple with basic hand tools but a ring compressor would be nice for installation. This is from memory so I may have missed something.

    Remove the water rail
    Remove the dome cover of affected cylinder
    Remove exhaust Bolts for affected cylinder
    Remove cylinder nuts
    Lift cylinder off piston
    Use screw driver or hook tool to remove cir clip holding wrist pin in place
    Remove wrist pin
    Remove piston
    Reverse order

    What was the cause for the failure?
