1/ Unscrew the existing Jaguar pickup
2/ Loosen or take off the strings
3/ Unscrew the pickguard
4/ Unscrew the three switch plate
5/ Heat up soldering iron, have a cup of tea
6/ The two wires coming from your jag pup one is HOT and goes to the switch point (take note of this point or mark it with a pen), the other wire is a GROUND wire going to the ground point on the plate.
7/ Unsolder these two wires off the switch plate and replace them with the Seymour Duncan (hot and ground were appropriate)
8/Put everything back together.
If you want to reinstall the 'claw', unsolder it from the old pickup and make sure you solder a jumper piece of solder to the ground wire on the new pickup.
The pickup cover is a different matter, i dont think it will fit over the SD pup without cutting the top section of the cover out.

I did't do it yet....just decided
so if don't want to chang the pick up but I wanna get the warm and more sustain like Humbucker
so should I just use Pickup Booster Effects Pedal instead of changing the pick up
like a Seymour Duncan SFX-01 Pickup Booster Effects Pedal does it good for jag what do you think
does anyone used it before .....
//please don't give a damn about my poor English I'm japanese

You could warm the sound up using a booster or gain pedal and control the bass frequency with an EQ pedal. If feedback is a problem you could use a 'gate' effect as well. Multi FX usually have all these FX in one box at lower cost so they are ideal, but they can sound unnatural. So..
If you are looking to naturally drive a tube amp with your guitar then the pickup swap is probably the best option.
There are a lot of options for pickup upgrades, seymour duncan (for Jaguar) has good choices. The Quarter pound is a warmer pickup and it also fits in the claw and cover okay.

I'd been using it a lot with the stock pups for recording - mostly for the neck pup sound which was a bit fantastic. Live, the neck pup sound worked a treat, but I may as well not have had a bridge pup - it was shrill and thin, and squealed #### appallingly at the drop of a hat.
I hesitated going for the SD QPs thinking I may lose the luvvly neck pup sound - in fact I thought of having just a QP at the bridge and leaving the neck stock.
Affordability kinda intervened - a pair from the US turned out a lot less than the same from the UK, so I gave it a try with both.
It's a different guitar. I can still get to those sweet front pup tones, jangle in the middle, and bite and substance at the bridge.
Not shrill. Not thin.
Couldn't recommend 'em more, really.
