Unscrewed 4 screws holding element. Disengaged one wire, but 2nd one was separated while pulling through rear wall. Could not grasp the wire from the front. Then unscrewed 4 screws along sides of oven to pull casing away from wall cavity. Sat oven on a box while unscrewing 12 rear panel screws. Pulled wire through from back into oven. (Didn't need to do this because new element extended through the rear wall to access from back. Could have reattached wires to new element from the rear, but didn't realize this soon enough.)....two days later reinstalled new broiler element reattaching wires inside the oven and replacing 4 screws holding element in the oven. To replace the back panel I had to lay oven on its face so the holes on back of would fit with the rear panel. Put 12 screws back on. Then pushed oven back into wall cavity and put 4 screws holding oven in place. It is now working!
