Very easy, removed two (2) hex headed sheet metal screws from oven bottom pan, slipped out, unplugged igniter & removed two (2) sheet metal screws. Removed broken (element) igniter. Reversed steps installing new element. Be careful do not touch element. The "new" style replacement element will have metal guard around the element for added protection& support.
