I am scared that I'll damage the entire head, while doing it. It happened in the process and to my knowledge, it got blocked by some materials in the filament.
How can I replace the brass without demolishing the Head! Or is there any other way, which would not require replacement at all?

So Arnaud, you might have to get the nozzles extremely cold somehow to remove it, it's necessary.
 Heating the nozzles helps in some cases but don't try it unless you absolutely have to.Have you heard of 0.2mm to 0.5mm Selectable Drill Bits, those are cleaning kits consider buying those for preventing these kinda of issues in future.
