I turned off the power at the breaker for the oven. I had to use a small wrench to get off the two screws keeping the bake element in the oven.

I pulled it out a bit and exposed where the element screws into the power.

To prevent the wires from receding back into the wall after I unscrewed them, I taped them to the inside of the oven.

After removing the old element, I just installed the new one the same way. Screwed it into the power, and tightened the panel to the back of the oven.

Reset the breaker, and you're good to go.

Took 10 mins tops. It is pretty cramped in there and you need a good flashlight to see what you're doing.
