I disconnected the electricity to the oven first and then removed the two screws holding the element to the frame of the oven. These were very simple to do. Then I pulled out the element and unscrewed the connections. I then replaced the Bake Element by connecting the new one back to the two wires and pushed it back into the slot. Finally I screwed the two screws back in place. The only thing I would advise is to be carefull when you are tightening the terminals of the new element. The metal is very soft and overtightening causes the terminals to bend to the right (the direction of tightening). Also, I was unable to screw the leads tightly to the element as the screw would not go in all the way. So I had to take the element out and righten the screw through the hole to open up the hole for the screw to go in smoothly. It would be a good idea to do this before trying to install. Otherwise, it was a pretty easy job.
