I CUT THE POWER TO THE CIRCUIT. REMOVED THE BURNER AND THEN UNSCREWED THE OLD ALUMINUM PLATE ATTACHED TO THE RANGE TOP COVER. OPENED THE TOPCOVER TO ACCESS THE WIRES. I CUT THE TWO WIRES BEING SURE THAT I LEFT ENOUGH LENGTH. I THEN SLIPPED THE TWO NEW WIRES WITH THE BRASS CONTACTS INTO THE NEW BLACK PLASTIC HOLDER UNTIL IT LOCKED. REATTACHED THE NEW METAL PLATE TO THE RANGE COVER, FED THE WIRES THROUGH AND SNAPPED THE NEW PLASTIC HOLDER INTO THE ALUMINUM PLATE. SECURED WIRE ENDS WITH THE CERAMIC WIRE NUTS. TOTAL TIME ABOUT 30 MINUTES.
