Read the instructions-unplugged. Removed two screws on top of microwave holding the grill in place. Moved grill to left and removed it. Removed old charcoal filter and then removed one more screw from bulb cover (just below charcoal filter). Removed the lamp from the bracket and replaced with new lamp being careful not to touch with fingers because oil will destroy halogen bulbs (use packing material to put in bulb). Replaced lamp in bracket; replaced bulb cover & screwed in place; replaced charcoal filter;& replaced grill & plugged in.
