Have you tried using Modeller.

The script provided in the above example is simple to use. You give it the
protein name (same as file name except the ".pdb" part), the residue
position to mutate, the residue name to mutate to and the chain and that's
it. Line 13 in the script gives more details on the usage of the script.
