You can buy these very cheaply and its a fairly straight forward job to replace them with a small soldering iron.

Where can I find a guide on how to do this I have looked elsewhere and it seemed fairly complicated

straighten in a viceusing a bit of cloth as padding very gently, do not use pliers, rotate into different poistions until til you get it straight.

And if you don't have a vice, there's drinking, gambling, women.........

But you could use plumbers pliers where the gripping faces are parallel. Wonderful tool that no household should be without.
