the timer knob shaft must be held in place from spinning while the knob hub is removed, simply grasp the shaft with needle nose pliers below whats left of the hub and with another pair of pliers grasp what is left of the knob hub and rotate counter clockwise, once it is broken free it should spin right off. Reverse this process to install the new timer knob.
Installing the lid bumper is simple just pull out the old bumper with needle nose pliers and start the new bumper in from the bottom of the lid and work bumper until the bumper clears the hole in the lid, you may need a small flat screwdriver to work it in gently as not damage the finnish or the bumper when you clear the thicker part of the bumper flange it will lock right into the lid.
