Some people try to patch the ruined shingles with caulk or other material, but that's not worth the trouble. It'll look terrible and it's so much better to simply replace that part.

First, you need to have a flat bar because you must break the shingle apart from the glue that's keeping it on the roof as well as separate it from the other shingles. If your roof is older, this process should be easy. Sometimes, you can do it with your hands. However, you'll need to be careful with the flat bar on newer roofs because the glue is probably still working perfectly.
