What's the best procedure for replacing the flip-over needle on this cartridge from a Garrard AT-6 in a Dumont console? Thanks in advance.

This video gives one acceptable procedure. Your photo does not
show the stylus retaining clip well, but it should be similar.

Yes, it has a tapered metal clip that the end of the needle goes under, so I imagined you prise it up to slip the old one out and the new one in, thanks for the video.

It just has a spring clip which retains the stylus, and much like a Pfanstiehl cartridge that I have on my V-M 1551 stereo record changer. Actually, it's one of the easiest styluses to replace.
