Its a simple wiggle and pull upwards job this one to remove the existing and a firm push down to fit the new one. Careful though as these pieces all mark far too easily!

Same as the cup holder installation in this video:

I don't think you can replace the slider on its own can you? I thought it was a whole unit or nothing?

Any pic of what you've got for context?
