The part arrived the very next afternoon. My husband was at work, so I decided to give it a try. After reading other repair stories, I began by shutting off the breaker to the oven. Next, removed the racks. I then used a socket to remove the two screws on back plate. I then VERY CAREFULLY and slowly pulled out the element a short distance, just to see the connections. I used a magnetic refrigerator clip to hold onto the clip so it wouldn't go back into the insulation in the oven:(someone else suggested this---good suggestion) I slid off the connectors and slid them back onto the new element. Pushed it back in and put screws back on.
