The panel was removed by removing the lower screws and lifting the panel out. The old panel had a wood insert to match the cabinets in the kitchen. I removed the upper plastic piece holding the wood in place and slipped it out. I inserted this into the new access panel and attached the upper plastic piece to hold it in place. I detached the metal vent piece from the bottom of the old access panel and snapped it into the new panel. I then slipped the metal vent over the lower screws and tightened them. Finally I inserted the upper screws and tightened the panel into place. It took less time than I expected and only required a nut driver and a screwdriver.
