Turn off the oven's breaker. Remove oven grates. Unscrew two screws holding in the bake element. Slowly pull the bake element out a few inches. Using pliers, CAREFULLY unattach the connectors from the ends of the bake element. DO NOT FORCE OR CRUSH THE CONNECTORS. Using your hands only, attach the connectors to the ends of the new bake element. Re-insert the element into the back of the oven. Re-insert the screws to attach the new element to the back of the oven. Turn the breaker back on. Turn the oven on bake to test the element. Go have a beer to congratulate yourself on saving $75 or more. Should take about 10 minutes if you're proceeding slowly & carefully. It'll take 2 minutes if you're reckless and get lucky, but it'll take 2+ hours if you're reckless and all goes wrong, causing you screw up the connectors and need to go buy some plus crimpers, etc.
