Arrow Remove / Install Spring Loaded Hood Hinges?

I tried to remove a spring loaded hinge off my friends truck and it nearly took the end of my finger off.

Is there a way to properly remove and reinstall these hinges?
Also can the spring be re-tensioned and installed back onto the hood?

These hinges are hard to find from a parts place around here. Also the dealership said at least a week to get a new one in.

Any help much appreciated!

The hinge looks like this...

try opening the spring half way and putting plastic spacers in to hold it open. that will take the pressure off the hinge. a helper to hold the hood up is a good idea.
