First, turn off the breaker to the oven, then turn off the service disconnect to the whoe house. I play safe.) Open the door, pull out the oven racks to allow space. Using a Phillips screw driver, unscrew the screws near the front of the oven to loosen the element. Using both hands, pull the element straight out of the holes in the back of the oven, where you will find electric wires attached to them. Pull the ends of the element off the wire connectors. Throw it away. Get you new element, attach the element ends to the connectors. Raise it up to the top of the oven and screw the screws back in to the holes in the top of the oven. You are finished. (The only reason this took me 30 minutes is because I am an old 79 year old granny and can't bend so well, or see so well. I had to use a little acrylic paint on my finger tips to mark the screw holes, it was taking too long to find them the old way, by feel.) GG
