On a scale of 1-10 (1 being the lowest level of difficulty), this was clearly a 1. Tools needed are a plillips' head and flat head screwdrivers. First, lift off Burner Cap and Burner Head. Then, raise existing drip bowl (plenty excess wiring), and use flat screwdriver to release retainer clip. Now, disconnect wire attached to spark electrode (igniter) for removal. Unless replacing it, also remove the rubber gasket at base of old drip bowl for reuse (take the opportunity to clean throughly around drip pan base). Reverse procedure, and check igniter. Your job is complete, and you just saved the cost of a service call, and paid less than half the price of retail for genuine replacement parts. As a side note, I received the parts from PartsSelect in less than 24 hours. The customer reviews will also fully reassure you that you are more than capable of making the simple replacement.
