Very good instructions have already been posted on here from other users. Although the defect was the defrost heater, while I was there and for peace of mind I replaced the thermistor as well.
The new defrost heater kit comes with a revised element which contains necessary extension wire and detailed instructions on how to install. Tried to get my wife to do the job, but she wasn't interested. :)
