Jim is right: do not use a high-wattage soldering iron. It's not difficult, though you may want to practice.
You will use the iron to heat the original crystal's board solder, one leg at a time, only enough to pry the leg gently from the board. You will have legs on the original and the replacement crystals and the switch to solder to: your hookup wire does not have to be tiny.

Radio Shack carries the wire. Look for "Wire Wrap" wire in #28 or #30
gauge. Also, you'll want to use a low-wattage soldering iron in the
15-25W range. Anything hotter will damage chips and lift traces.
