Probably a good idea to either unplug unit or make sure oven is in off position first, then remove screw on either side of old bake element, then gently pull out about 3 inches to expose wire connections and carefully disconnect each slide-on connector. Dispose old element in trash and replace with new one from partselect.com in reverse order. Very simple and much less expensive than either buying a new appliance(if you've been satisfied with what you have), paying a repairperson to come in and/or trying to hunt down the right part from a "local" appliance store/warehouse. The part was easily identifiable via the graphic depiction on the partselect.com website, arrived in excellent condition and in record time for normal ground shipping(less than 2 days from order date!), and I experienced kind and competent customer service from the get-go. A do-it-yourselfer like me really can't ask much more than that when it comes to appliance repair!
