They are easy to break but the best way is to fix it in position by hand and then use a crystal press, with flat nylon dies, to push it in the rest of the way.
That is if it is held in by a nylon washer seal and the seal is in perfect condition. Some were glued in as the crystals were very thin.
These crystals are expensive and I would suggest you get it professionally fitted.
