The biggest problem was getting the back of my dryer off. After that, the heating element was relatively easy. I followed the steps from this site. First I removed the two screws holding the heating cannister in place and disconnected the two wires connected to the actual element. The Element slid right out and I replaced it with the new one that came (delivered in two days after I ordered it). Then I just redid everything in reverse to get the back back on to the dryer, plugged it in and got heat right away!
