 squirted LiquidWrench on the 4 screws holding the convection fanblade rear cover in place. Used a socket and rachet to remove screws; the loosener really helped after 10+ years.
 the broken heating element was easy to remove. The two spade connectors however didn't have much free length;these wires wanted to retreat back into the rear oven wall.
 So i put a small binder clip from my desk supplies on each spade end, this left the connectors where I could grab them.
I used needle-nose pliers to firmly crimp the the spade connectors onto the new heating element; couldn't have made a firm placement with fingertip pressure alone.
 I cleaned the oven door hinge area, oven bulb area, and other hard to reach spots with Simple Green and wipes.
