While I've never done a P89DC, I have fooled with the P-85 a bit. However, if you can get a copy of the "Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly" Part I Automatic Pistols, it'll have a very detailed photo instruction on the P-85. That should pretty much help you replace the firing pin. If you need any parts, I have a bunch for the P-85 & P-89 too.

It is real easy.
Pull the extractor.
Decock lever on that side comes out after you push in on the firing pin a little.
You may be able to take the pin out at that point if you can move the other decocker far enough out of the way.
Otherwise you have to remove the decock spring pin and spring to free up the decock lever.
Then the firing pin just falls out.

You can look at this too for some help but this is a safe model.
