I removed the two screws in the oven and then pulled the stove out to remove the center back panel. This was easy to do once I found the right sized socket. Next I removed the two electric connections from the broken baking element and removed it from the oven. After I cleaned the oven it only took a couple of minutes to install the new baking element (connected the two electric connectors, screwed the two screws in the back of the oven, and replaced the back center panel). After that I plugged the oven in and tested the oven and it worked perfectly. Thanks for getting my new baking element to me so fast.
