Pried cover off bottom-center of microwave. It seems to be either glued or lightly tack welded. Removed 2 small Phillips screws to remove motor. Disconnected electric feed by hand. Don't let go of electric wire or small screws. They will be hard to retrieve from behind the rest of the metal base. Reverse process to install new motor. Didn't try to put small cover back on.
