I first removed oven glass panel from frame by removing three screws which secured it to the frame. I then removed the spacer and handle mounts with a 1/4 inch nut driver. This is the only tool that worked for the application. Using an oen wrench or a rachet without a long extension would have taken much more time. Then reattached new handle using existing screws and resecured oven dorr glass to the frame.

One thing to look at is the old handle bracket vs. new bracket. The old bracket had metal threaded inserts to secure the mounting screws. The new handle is all plastic. This said, the existing screws might not work for the application and may split the plastic mounting bracket if it is over tightened. In my case they worked fine but, it is just something to think about.
