Turn the power off at the breaker first! then I used a phillip head screwdriver and unscrewed the two screws that was holding the metal plates on, then pulled the element out with the wires connected and pulled off the terminals. Then i put the new element in and hooked the wires to the terminals then pushed back through the back of the oven then screwed the plates back on then it was done!

1. Ensure oven is powered down and cool to the touch. For extra assurance, throw the circuit breaker to the range to OFF. 2. Pulling gently but with constant force remove the right rear surface burner element from its receptacle. 3. Remove right rear drip bowl. 4. Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver remove the single screw that holds the vent cover. 5. Lift the oven top, it should latch open. 6. Remove the vent cover - you may need to pry it very slightly with a slot screwdriver if it has never been removed, it tends to stick from accumulated cooking smudge. 7. Clean up the area where the new cover will go. 8. Install the new cover and screw it snugly, but don't overtighten. 9. Using releases on latching struts,lower oven top. (Cautiously, so as not to pinch your fingers as the top drops!) 10. Re-seat the drip bowl and carefully plug the heating element back in, making sure it seats properly in both the electric receptacle socket and how it sits on the stove top drip pan. Done! (Don't forget to switch the breaker back on, if you turned it off.) I explained this in great detail, but it shouldn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to accomplish the whole task.

The video was good but my model had and additional back plate that wasn't mentioned with 6 additional screws to take out and put back in. Other than that the video explained everything including checking the wires, clips. Oven works great now.
