First, used the nutdriver to remove the two screws that hold the element. Then pulled out the element 4 inches. Disconnected the two wires from the old element and discarded it. Connected the wires to the new element and tightened them a bit by squeezing with pliers (not too tight, but just enough so they won't disconnect easily). Pushed the wires back through the insulation and screwed the two nuts back in place, making adjustments so that the element is level.

I had a great experience with part select. The part was easy to find and arrive within two days in perfect conditions. Everything went smoothly with the repair and the element is working very well.
