Gooseneck

Gooseneck cracked, want to remove and put other gooseneck on. How do I remove uncracked gooseneck from its spar?
 
You will need to loosen the set screw and then pry the jaws slightly apart with a flat head screwdriver and hammer so it will slide. Then remove the plastic boom end cap and any sail attachment clips in the way and slide the damaged gooseneck forward off the boom. Install the new gooseneck, tighten the set screw at the desired location, re-install the sail clips and end cap, and go sailing.

Thank you Alan. I was hoping to not have to detach the miscellaneous hardware but I guess there's no shortcut. Appreciate the reply
 
Sometimes if the boom endcap does not have an "ear" on it you can slide the gooseneck over the endcap without removing it from the boom.
