It was real easy......
1. removed the 4 phillips head screws from the top of the control panel. The control panel is hinged and pulls forward towards you
2. Holding the Control Panel Chassis at an angle look between the knob and the backing ring for a clear c clip. (Note: you are looking for the open end not the closed end of the clip) Take a small flat blade screwdriver, place it between the timer knob and backing and press down until the clip slides off the spindle.
3. Remove the knob.
4. Before removing the wiring on the timer assy unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
5. Locate the green grounding wire on the timer assy and remove it with pliers.
6. Remove the main control connector by squeezing the tabs.
7. There was only 1 hexhead screw holding my assy to the chassis, remove and carefully pull up the left side of the assy just enough for the timer spindle to exit the chassis.

At this point its just the reverse order to connect the new assy.
