Removed the bottom plate screws from the microwave. Disconnect the wire harness. Replacement of the light sockets is easy. The female terminal connectors that connected to the bulb sockets were corroded, so I had to go to the hardware store and get replacements for those also. Replacement of those was unexpected but straightforward.
