remove all loose components on range top (grates, caps, disbursement / diffuser heads. Take a T-15 screw driver and unscrew each of the three screws on each burner. Have a large flat headed screwdriver ready. Lift up on the front lid of the range, it should life about 1/4 inch. There are two clips that hold it down, about 6 - 8 inches in from either side. Press then towards the back (away from you) one at a time, while lifting on the lid.. it should pop free. WARNING: if you did not remove the torx screws first, be careful are you will now bend the gas lines running to the burner. Once loose, remove the old clip from the igniter, so that it lifts free. unplug the igniter from the electrical cable (pulls out from bottom). attach new clip to new igniter and re-attach electrical line to new igniter. close lid and re-attach all torx screws. Reassemble range top and you are complete.
