I used the instructions that came with the order of the part from this site. Right on target. Removed top screw first. Popped the plastic rim hiding the lower screw using a butter knife and carefully lifting it off at the corners to reveal and reach the bottom screw. I had a hard time initially getting the screws tight given my hand strength using a regular Phillips head screwdriver. The bottom screw also is in a tight space. Then I remembered that my Dad gave me a special kind of screwdriver with multiple heads that you pop on according to size and it ratchets as you turn it to give you more leverage -- and it gets into tight places. Two quick turns and it was done! Like brand new. If I had pulled out the right tool to begin with, I would have finished in less than 2 minutes.
