How to replace lumbar spring?

What is the best way to replace the lumbar springs in the from seats? My driver side broke, I got the new spring but am having trouble with changing it. I tried to go in through the back of the seat but can not get the top connection. It seems like you have to go in the front of the seat. In order to do this it seems that the cover is strapped in the bottom and you have to take the seat out to access this. Am I right?

What is the best way to replace the spring, can it be done with the seat in the car?

You'd notice the difference pretty quick but first you hear it pop if it breaks.

Yes, that's exactly it. The part cost me about $16 but I just can't figure out how to install without taking out the seat which I would like to avoid.
