Removing stem from watch - Caliber FHF 175

Hi I broke my watch stem for my watch (FHF 175). I was looking for some advice on removing the broken end and replacing it with a new one. I recall when I was fiddling around a year ago that I had accidently removed my crown+stem and then popped it back in again. I suppose though its not that straight forward (I.e. need to take some precautions). I recall loosening a tiny screw (see screen shot) and it came out. Cant remember though if I also removed the gears and plate as well before losing the screw (Although I guess I would have had to remove that screw in the screen shot to actually remove the plate under it).  I want to be a bit careful here. Can someone confirm if that was the way to do it and what precautions I should take pulling out the broken end of the stem and sticking a new one back in. I'm not dealing with a rolex here so hopefully I'm not looking to be scared off of doing this myself but use some useful advice. I've attached a 278886820_WatchMovement.jpg.062a3a59c63eaab0eb891ff8f484f857.jpgn shot.  Thank you.

Hi thats the right screw , loosen it 1 1/2  to2 turns and then with either a pair of tweezers or snall pliers the sten portion should pull out. Undoing the sctrew too far the setting piece will fall out so be careful

Okay. Thanks for your input.
