I used a hex wrench to remove the 8 screws ( 2 on each burner ), pulled up the knobs, and lifted the ceramic top. use pliers to disconnect the spark plugs. I disconnected the switch harness from the igniter, disconnect the igniter wires remembering the color scheme.My igniter had a minor variance from the old one which an acompanying map clarified. I installed the new switch harness and the new igniter, made the igniter connections according to the color scheme and the accompanying diagram, replaced the ceramic top, pulled spark wires thru, installed the burners and the spark plugs, tightened the 8 screws, and tested the burners.
