This is going to be easy!!!

#1 First removed two screws at the bottom of the front cover Pulled the bottom out first to loosen the top and then gently pulled down to remove front cover.
#2 took a duster to remove the dust and cob webs:)
#3 Looked at the parts and then removed the heater element I used a SHORT nut driver for that.
#4 Once removed I inspected the parts farther to look for more damage (there was no more)
Now the fun part...
#5 The heater assembly. go's into the hole at an angle. You MUST be really tiny or have freakishly long arms to reach the back and screw that screw in.
#6 have wife with small hands that wants to try while you vent your frustration because you cant reach the screw hole and you lost a screw.
#7 Be ready to push hard on the assembly. while you screw the screw back into the hole.
#8 put the front of the heater back on.....check to make sure its all in there and hooked up like it should be.
#9 put front cover back on.
#10 dry clothes, and wonder why it was so hard. knowing is half the battle, Its going to be a 10 min job next time.
