While I admit I laughed a little about your question, I thought about it some. There are actually some people that own an AR-15 type rifle that have never fully disassembled their weapon and for that matter dont completely know how. Some have never removed the buffer and buffer spring.
To do so:
Press the detent pin holding the buffer in the stock, It is a small pin on the bottom directly in front of the buffer. It holds the buffer and buffer sprind in the tube. When you press it down the buffer will pop forward under pressure from the spring. Remove it from the stock and place new buffer in stock with the buffer spring. Whe you press it in past the detent pin the pin will pop back up and hold the new buffer and the buffer spring secure in the tube.
Hope that helps, Only a little harder than changing the oil on your car.
