I turned off the electricity to the oven.and removed the door.
I removed the 2 screws with a nut driver holding the element in place, pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires with pliers , clamped the 2 wires together to keep them from falling in the back of liner.
When the new element was received the procedure was reversed. Electricity was restored and the oven works perfectly.
