This is one of those things that is difficult to describe and even harder to understand and picture, until you actually do it. That said, there is no real trick to it other than patience and diligence. I simply depress the brushes with my fingers and gently guide the new regulator/brush assembly into the alternator.

It will go in quite nicely once you get it. Just keep fiddling at it gently until it slips into place. You should never have to force it. If your fingers are too big, try and get someone with smaller hands...
