It's not that hard, but practice at home a few times.
- First, shift into the lowest gear to loosen the cable.
- Then, remove the end of the cable from the slot. It will be attached to a small hex nut, so you just slide the whole thing out sideways.
- Unbolt the wheel and remove it. Fix it, then do the whole thing in reverse.
As Sixty Fiver says, sometimes you can just pull a part of the tube out, if you know exactly where the hole is. At least you don't have one of those fully enclosed chains. I don't know how people manage to get the wheel out with those things.
