The vent grille simply went into place (door open) and I put in the two screws that hold it in place. For the two light fixtures, I had to remove five screws and let the hinged bottom plate on the underside of the microwave drop down. That provided access to both light fixtures. One screw to remove and each fixture (a socket really) unplugs and the new one goes in its place - along with a new lamp. It was fairly intuitive.
