Default FJ40 Alternator Brushes

My alternator and back up alternator both tested no good this morning. I ordered new brushes which arrived this afternoon. I've been able to get the alternator case separated and can see the brushes. I'm a bit stumped on how I get the old ones out. I understand a soldering iron is needed and have one.

What has me stumped is physically how the old brush gets out of the housing and the new brush gets put in. I've reviewed my FSM, but this time the description is not helping me. Here is what I'm looking at.

Any suggestions/guidance that would help me from messing this up?
