Removing the old push nuts was the most difficult task and it became necessary to pry each nut flap open a bit using a tiny slot screwdriver tip and then remove the nut from the damaged handle. This took the most time, being careful not to damage the glass front. Once the push nuts were removed, It took less than 5 minutes to reinstall the new handle, push nuts and attach the glass door with new handle with two screws through the oven door. Good as new.

Oh, yes, I returned the push nuts and screws that I ordered because replacements were included with the handle. Select Parts graciously refunded that part of my order.
