I unplugged the stove from the power plug in the wall. There are two screws at the back of the oven to hold the element in place. I removed the two screws. There are wire clamp inserts that attach to the element. Once the element was loose from the back wall of the oven, I gently pulled out the wire clamps. Removed the element. I laid the new element in the bottom of the oven and gently pushed the wire clamps into the new element. Re-attached the screws and put the power back into the wall and I was done. Easy, easy, easy. As for the drip pans, I pulled the element from the plug just under the stove top, cleaned the element and replaced the old drip pans with the new. Slid the element back into the plug and I was done.
