Removal of the rear component cover simply required the removal of (6)X 1/4 bolts. Heating element has two spade connectors that i removed and a retaining bolt on either side. Thermal sensor is removed and installed on to the new coil and installation is the reverse of removal...NOTE caution when trying to crimp the open in the coil as it will most likely weld itself open again.
