First I turned off the circuit breaker to the oven. Then, I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches to disconnect the two wires. The connectors were tight, so required a little wiggling to disconnect the wires.

Upon receipt of the replacement element, I turned off the circuit breaker to the oven. Then, I reconnected the element wires, pushed the connect wires into the back of the oven, and rescrewed the unit in place. With the circuit breaker turned back on, I tested the oven. It worked great. Very easy!
