This is not a hard fix but don't believe the stories that say it'll take 15 minutes. Took me a little over an hour to uninstall the part - maybe 30 minutes to put it together again. Easy to intermediate fix.

First - kill the power using the circuit breaker, pull out the range from the wall & shut off the gas line. Unscrew two screws on the underside of the rangetop (open the oven door to access) then remove a couple more on top by the knobs. After that the top will lift up a bit. Then disconnect the 5 gas line fittings on the manifold & the main gas fitting into the manifold. Remove the back panel to unplug the wire connected to the switch. Now pull out the manifold that has the igniter switch on top. That's about it. When you look at the existing part you can easily see how the new part attaches to the manifold.

Install part & put everything back together.

The cost was around $46 total - hard to beat that!
