If you are skilled at taking things apart and putting them back together you can do it. You have to pop the rail out to get the pickup out. Then there are four screws to replacing the part.

You may need to try to physically move the pickup either forward or back a little and see what happens if it still does not help then the next culprit could be the position switches.
