first pulled the breaker, then removed the oven door. One wire came out easily but the other side would not budge so we had to take off the back of the range. They had cought the wire up in a loop and so it had no give. Removed it from the loop so if it ever needs to be replaced again we won't have the same problem. Used the advice from other comments and it went as discribed. I hope others also removed the door as I can't imagine how much harder it would be with the door in place.
