1)Removed the screws holding the bottom cover of the microwave (this is an over-the-stove mounted microwave), the panel was hinged so it stayed in place. There were approx 10 screws to remove.
2)disconnected the motor (easy snap off)
3)removed the motor (2 screws mounted it
4)mounted the new motor, plugged it in, screwed the bottom panel in place and it was ready to go.
