First I opened the door to the oven. Then I opened the box that the part came in. (knife) I then slid the oven rack out of the box and unwrapped the plastic, being careful not to bend or scratch the new rack. Now, this is the tricky part... I had to move the existing rack down one space to make room for the new one. Then carefully slid the new rack in, tipping it slightly and sliding it in. LOL

The repair was super simple, just remove the drip pan and place new one.
The hard part was finding the drip pan for such an old model appliance. I had shopped locally here in San Antonio with no luck.
I was very happy to find them (exact match) at Part Select and the price was very reasonable. I'll use Part select in the future for needed parts.
