I am the worst handy man, but I have to say, this was so easy. Web site was well designed to find the exact part I needed. The coils pull out of the blocks with moderate pressure. Stove top lifts up like a car hood and rests on little arms. The blocks unscrew from retaining holes with a few turns of a nut driver. Take the back of the stove off, a matter of 8 screws and two minutes. Poke the new wires through following the old wires, pull the spade terminals loose by hand or needle-nose pliers and replace with new. Polarity indeed does not matter. Incredibly fast. Took me a quarter hour. (We will not speak of the extra hour of cleaning areas no scrub brush had ever seen).
