First I read many of the stories on your sight. Then I decided "I am woman hear me roar!" I can DO this...Couldn't find the stubby screw driver, so I used a longer one.I also laid out the pliers, just in case. I unscrewed the four screws and pulled out the expired element. Had to finish breaking it to remove the bracket that held it in place. At first I thought I would have to call for help to pull the terminal wires off. I was afraid of damaging them, but a firm grip with just my fingers was all it took, no pliers needed. I used my I-phone flashlight to see to put the screws back in place. I made toast! It was yummy.
