The top edge of the microwave has a grill that had to be removed. To do that we took the two screws off and slowly slid the grill to the left before removing it. We had seen this on youtube. We have to be careful here because the grill has three plastic tabs that we cannot see. These tabs slide out from their tiny slots in bigger slots when we are sliding the grill to the left. The grill then comes off easily. No force is needed here so be gentle as much as you can. The charcoal filter can then be inserted in the microwave and tilted holding the front edge. The filter rests at an angle. The edges of the filter fits in the two corners of the space for the filter. The grill can then go back in place again with its tabs to slide in their slots slowly. Screws go back too. You now have a new charcoal filter for 6 months to a year depending on frequency of usage.
