The old crystals are removed with a special tool which acts like a suction cup. You can improvise other methods but you're likely to cause damage. Often times the new crystal, which is slightly convex, can be snapped in by hand, but even here, we use special equipment to avoid damage to the indicator. It's best to leave this to someone with the right tools. T
Unlike many other test indicators, the bezel can not be removed without complete disassembly.
