loosen the side that hops up 1/4 of a turn at a time, go from left to right though, if you do it incorrectly you can be stuck with a untrue wheel that is straighter then a gay parade. If you don't feel comfortable doing it bring it to a LBS and have them look at it. To change from rhd/lhd or visa-versa you would have to take out the driver and flip the springs/pawls, not very hard but time consuming if you don't know what you are doing.

Take a small flat head screwdriver and shove it in right where the little space is by the peak of the c-clip and just put it outwards. If you have enough room in your driver like mine, you might be able to put some needle-nosed pliers and pull it out.
