Purchased the new, removed the old (2 phillips screws) and installed the new igniter. I was able to salvage one of the old wires by pulling the broken post out of the slip fitting. I ordered 3 new wires (at a later date) just in case. I think the only trick part of this job is to properly install the ignition knob, this is more than important. if installed incorrectly a person could damage the new igniter.

Knob would not turn igniter.

We replaced 3 of 4 igniters on the stove top according to the previously submitted recommendations. Easy to do butt after putting one of the modules back together, we found one igniter still didn't function. We discovered the solution was to run the connecting wire under the gas tubing. Apparently it was compressed when it was over the top of the tube and not under it.

Removed burner pan screws,igniters, gas tubes & burners. Changed 2 igniters, removed rust & repainted ends of 2 of the tubes (heatproof paint). New burners were made a hair smaller than original but locked in O.K...Now, the hard part...disconnected all four tubes from gas valve assembly. (Had to shut off gas to house in order to remove main gas line to stovetop.) Had to remove valve box in order to remove/replace frozen valve. Unit is 25 years old, works as and looks new...Rust was caused by boil-overs.
