Do not remove the gas line.

Take off the burner racks and burner covers

Gently extract/remove the ignitors from each burner. You may have to use pliers, but be careful. They are ceramic.

Once you pull out the ignitors, you can remove the ignitors from their wires using plyers, you may have to twist them a little.

To take off the top - use Star screw drivers to remove the burners

Remove all the burners.

The star screws, and the burners are the only thing holding the top on.

Take off the steel top.

That exposes the ignitor switch assembly.

Make sure you follow the positioning diagram that comes with the new part.

Thats it really.

I removed the gas, because I thought I had to, but you don't need to. You can do the whole job in 30 minutes if you are careful.

Hope it helps.
