Just pull the old one out and push the new one in until it clicks. It is hard to express in writing but it is easy to do. Just realize that there is no magic involved. Pay attention to what you are doing, be gentle, but firm and do it.
It comes out the front and goes back in the same way it came out.

Cannot remove toner cartridge from Brother HL 2170W

Had the same thing happen to me today. When you open the door to pull out the cartridge, there is an arm (less than an inch away from the green tab) on the printer which should connect to the door. When you open the door it retracts a wheel which releases the toner cartridge/drum assembly. This had become disconnected from the door.
