Real simple, Unplug power cord from the wall outlet. Then open the top of the dryer by inserting a flat blade screwdriver under the front and pry up till the top snaps open. Lean the top to the back to keep it out of the way. Remove the 2 screws that held the front on and remove the wires for the door switch and the light. Remove the front by letting it lean out about 8 inches and lift it up out of the two bottom clips. Then just lay it any where it will be easy to work on. Clean where the new guide will go. Then just follow the instructions that came with the part. After the adhesive is fully dry just reverse the process and you are done.
