Using the crescent wrench, I first removed the bolt holding the cover plate that separates the wiring from the broiler section of the oven.
Then I removed the wire nuts that connected the wires from the igniter to the wires from the oven.
Then I removed the two screws that attached the igniter to the oven.
I then reversed the process, first attaching the igniter to the oven, then connecting the wires from the igniter to those from the oven using the wire nuts. Finally, I replaced the cover plate on the assembly.
The primary difficulty with the process was the small space to work in. One has to reach to the back of the broiler area to remove the bolt, screws and wire nuts. Some of these operations require two hands, and there's no room for both arms in this area.
However, that said, this is the third time we've replaced the igniter. It seems that it only lasts about 4 years before it needs to be replaced. It's not all that hard to do.
