My only problem was figuring out how to disconnect the power to the range. I pulled the unit out to unplug, only to find that it was hardwired to a junction box. So I went for the breaker, and after some trial and error (unmarked box) was pretty sure that the appliance was not live. Took out the two screws holding the element in, lifted the piece off the clip that holds the front up, and gently pulled forward. This exposed the wires and their attachment to the element. The metal tabs attaching the wire to the element disconnected easily, and I connected the new element in the same way. Pushed the wires/connectors back into the oven wall, and replaced the two screws. It now heats, so I hope it was successful.
