Conchos Saddle

how do i replace the stirrup leathers and fenders on my western saddle?

I just bought a used western saddle and the fenders had been repaired, problem is with this do-it-yourself repair job, the stirrups are no longer of equal length. Looking online everyone says how easy it was to remove and put in stirrups but they don't say how and for the life of me I can't figure it out. I manahed to expose apart of the tree by lifting the skirt by removing the conchos, but the stirrups are snug in there and I don't know what to do next.

I found some affordable replacement fenders and stirrups online so I want to do it myself. Any one know of a website with a good step-by-step tutorial with pictures?
Looking at it closely the leathers themselves wrap around the tree itself, I only say this because on one website it said "they slide off" and that's not the case with this saddle

Did you take the front conchos off the ones that are just below the swells of the saddle, and then lift off the seat from the front so that you are lifting up the leather of the gullet, it may be glued, then you would be able to unthread the stirrup leathers and replace the new ones ones around the bars of the tree.

Confused? You are trying to remove the fenders and stirrup leathers and not just change the stirrups??
