I HAD ALREADY REMOVED THE OLD HINGES BY REMOVING THE SCREWS/BOLTS AND REMOVING THE BROKEN HINGES FROM THE BACK SIDE THROUGH THE DRAWER BELOW THE OVEN THAT I HAD ALREADY REMOVED. TOOK THE NEW HINGES AND SCREWED THE TWO METAL SCREWS INTO THE TOP HOLE ON THE NEW HINGES AFTER PLACING HINGE IN VISE, ONE SCREW ON EACH THEN REMOVED THEM AND PLACED THEM TO THE SIDE. DETERMINED THE RIGHT TAP FROM MY TAP SET, AND THEN TAPPED THE BOTTOM TWO HOLES ON THE NEW HINGES, ONE ON EACH. PLACED THE BOLTS THAT CAME WITH THE NEW HINGES INTO THE HOLES I HAD JUST TAPPED, SCREW THEM IN, THEN I REMOVED THEM AND PLACED TO THE SIDE. TOOK HINGES AND BOLTS / SCREWS TO THE OVEN, INSERTED HINGES IN THROUGH THE DRAWER THAT I HAD REMOVED UP TO EACH SIDE WHERE HINGES WOULD COME BACK OUT TO THE FRONT OF THE OVEN. PLACED SCREWS / BOLTS ONE AT A TIME THROUGH OVEN DOOR FRAME INTO THE HINGE ON THE BACK SIDE, AND THEN THREADED THEM INTO THE HINGES AND TIGHTENED. REPLACED OVEN DOOR ONTO NEW HINGES AND CHECKED FOR CORRECT OPERATION. DOOR WORKS LIKE NEW.
