Removed screws holding element in place. Removed wire leads from element. Wire leads were under a bit of tension which pulled them back through their holes in rear oven wall. This required taking back of oven off to reinsert wires through holes. Used a clip to hold wires and prevent them from going back through holes. Attached wires to new element and removed clips. Placed element bracket in place and discovered that both screws had stripped threads (due to years of vibration, I'm guessing). Rummaged through garage and found two screws that worked. Replaced back of oven and re-plugged oven into outlet.
