This was a snap. It took me longer to find the right part number than it did to make the repair. After securing power to the oven, I removed the racks. I then unscrewed the element supports and pulled the element out slightly to expose the connectors. Using a pliers I removed the connector from each side of the element. At this point, I should have placed a piece of electrical tape to prevent the connector leads from slipping back into the body of the oven. Instead, I fished them out with a tweezer, and slid the connectors back onto each side of the element. I then screwed in the elements supports, replaced the oven racks, and restored the power. It literally took less than 10 minutes.
