When I pulled the old element out only one of the wires was visible, the other wire was still connected and after pulling a few times it came out , but the wire connector wasnt visible and I had to dig around in the small opening to find it (2 hours worth of digging and pulling) I finally got a hold of the wire and pulled it through and was able to connect it to the element, had to bend the metal around the opening to be able to get my finger in there and find the wire, The screws that hold the element in place wernt the same as the original so i just have it pushed up in place but it seems to work ok , took way longer than i thought it would.
