Editing single instance of a sub assembly

Hello,

 

I have an assembly with several instances of a sub assembly. When i edit a part within the sub, all instances of it in the assembly are replaced with the updated part.

 

How can i edit a single instance of the part, or an instance of the sub assembly, and not have the change reflected in the other instances? The obvious (and very tedious) way is to save the part or sub as a copy, and then insert the new copy into the assembly - but then i'd need to delete an existing instance and redo all the mates. I'm not too keen on doing this :]

 

any suggestions appreciated.
