First I shut the power off to the stove, then I lifted the burner and removed the screw that holds the hinge to the stove surface. Then gently I pulled the element out of the stove, exposing the wire connection (the ceramic block, the connection is samwiched between.) Then I took my screw driver and popped off one side of the clamped block(there is 2), then removed the top piece of the ceramic. Taking note of wire placment. Carefully used my socket wrench to remove screws that hold the 3 wires from the old element. Placed the new element in and screwed the wires on and placed the top ceramic piece back on. ( making sure wires are clear of pinching) Then push the clamps back on. Push wire connection(block) back in the stove top and screw on the hinge that holds it to the stove. I turned the power back on and now they are like new. This was very easy.
