i'm writing this several days after installling parts and from memory so forgive me if i miss a step or get the # of screws wrong.

Clock assembly replacement was very easy. Open oven door and remove screws just below the display panel, remove burner knobs and remove the 2 screws hidden by the knobs, remove the 2 screws holding the side triangular pieces (1 screw for each side). you may need to pull range out and away from the counter to remove the triangle pieces. remove the display panel, flip it over and remove 2 screws holding clock assembly. gentle remove the ribbon cables from the old assembly and then perform everything in reverse to reassemble.

Replacing the igniters was more difficult and took up the bulk of the time. Warning: find some way to test the spark module first. I replaced both igniters (1 wire was broken so it needed replacement for sure, but the other igniter may have been good...) and they still do not work. I'm waiting on delivery of a spark module.

remove all burner stuff (grill, burner assembly, etc.), then remove the top of the stove, there are 2 screws on each side and several in the back, there are also screws around the inside rim of the burner pans. also remove the panel on the back of the stove, this allows access to the spark module. gently lift the burner pans, reach underneath the pan and unscrew the nut holding the igniter in place. fortunately mine were easy to unscrew and i could do it with my fingers, getting a wrench underneath would have been a challenge. unhook the igniter wire from the spark module and remove the old igniter. install new igniter in reverse and reassemble.
