Removed the oven door from the oven using the KitchenAid supplied tool to hold the spring in position. There was a hole at the bottom of the hinge and if you insert this KA tool it would keep the hinge from closing completely which allowed you to pull the door away from the oven. Removed the 4 screws that held the front (glass cover) from inside part of the oven door.
Used the pliers to pull the hinge back to remove the KA tool and then unscrewed the 2 screws holding the hinge in place. Did the same on the other side. Installed the hinge into place and re-installed the glass front of the oven door. Place the oven door into the oven and when you open the door completely (down) the 2 holding pins are removed - similar to the KA tool.

Took about 30 minutes from start to finish. Used the parts list (found online) to see what screws I had to unscrew.

Searched online found PartSelect had good price, confirmed over the phone that the hinges were not a set (needed 2). Completed order online and part delivered in 2 days. Have used PartSelect twice for me oven. The Kitchenaid oven is another story - horrible - thank goodness for PartSelect.
