The hardest part was finding the right "Tine Pivot Clip," as several parts have the same name.

I wish I'd spent more time looking at the site's exploded parts diagram to pinpoint the broken part's exact location; I ordered the wrong ones at first, but eventually ordered the correct part. (I saved the others for when the other "tine pivot clips" break.)

Once I found the right part, it pushed on fairly easily with my fingers. (It might have broken had I used pliers.)

All in all, my orders still cost much less than a visit from the appliance repair company.
