I unplugged the microwave and turned it over. It was easy to spot where the motor was located. I noticed the cover had little tabs holding it in place. I noticed it had brackets that could be snipped and the cover reversed so the little tabs and hole for the metal screw could be installed. I used snips and cut the little tabs and removed the cover. The motor had one screw and a tab that held it in place. I unplugged the motor first removed the screw and changed the motor. Then I plugged it into the wiring harness.The plastic piece for the turn table dropped out. I used pliers and straightened the tabs turned the plate over and put two small extensions in the slots and removed the metal screw and pushed the tabs in place and the metal screw through the hole and tightened. I then set the microwave in place and opened the door and pushed the plastic piece into its proper place. I then got a cup of water and heated it up.
