identified the correct part to order. when it came, I used a Phillips-head screwdriver to undo the two brackets that hold the unit into the bottom of the countertop so I could slide it out a few inches. once I determined which spring was broken, I pulled out the remaining part and replaced it with the new one -- hooking it first into the hold farthest back in the appliance and looping the longer end over the top of the swiveling catch device that holds the front of the spring. then pushed unit back under countertop and screwed two brackets back into place with the existing wood screws and screwdriver. piece o' cake!
