i removed the front panel by removing the two screws on the top fan shroud then remove the shroud. then i removed the one screw over the main control panel and slid it down to unlatch it from the unit itself. i then removed the ground wire thus allowing you to remove the panel enough to unplug the wires. there are 4 sets of plugs and a ribbon strip to remove. i removed the 3 screws holding the board and installed the new board.i replaced the screws,the ribbon strip, and the plugs. i then installed the ground and repositioned the main panel onto the unit and reinstalled the screws to the board and the fan shroud. i plugged the unit in. programmed the dash and away we went.. no problems thus far. i have noticed on the old board some components that have got hot and rusted due to excess moisture from forgetting to use the exhaust fan when cooking,boiling ect.. thus causing the board to malfunction. i hope this has been semi helpful..
