The old glass had shattered so I had to clean up the glass fragments from the door including the track where the replacement glass fits. Also, I removed the complete oven door from the stove so I could lay it on the table and work with it better. I had to purchase a star shaped bit in order to remove the two long screws located on the inside of the door. These screws hold the door glass assembly to the oven door. After those two screws were removed, I could get to the remaining interior screws which completely removed the door glass frame from the oven. Once the door glass frame was removed, I placed the new glass into the track and reassembled the frame onto the oven door. Then I reattached the oven door to the range. Oh, by the way, the door is removed from the range by flipping a latch (from front to back) on either side of the door. Then you can remove the door. To put the door back on the stove, just insert the pertruding pieces and flip the lever from back to front (reverse order from how it was removed). You may have to jiggle it a couple of times to get it back into the slot correctly.
I had to learn how to do this as I went along.
