Slacken wheel nuts
Jack car up and remove wheel
Remove pinch bolt from hub
Use a ball joint splitter and split the ball joint from the hub
Remove the 2 bolts that hold the ball joint to the bottom arm
Then that will be it removed

For fitting a new 1:

Attach the new ball joint to the bottom arm first using the 2 new nuts and bolts that are provided,Then get a big bar or lever and pull the bottom arm down and locate the ball joint back in the hub (easyer with 2 ppl)
Then fit pinch bolt (new 1 if poss)
Refit wheel
Jack down
Job done
