Husband actually did the repair, It went really well except he forgot to remove the heat shield from the old part to attach to the new bottom. (His mistake!)

Unpluged power. 1. Removed all internals from the broiler. 2. Removed (3) protective heat shields. 3. Pulled glowbar plug through the access hole behind the gas piping. 4. Unplugged the glowbar. 4. Removed two glowbar holding screws and remove the glowbar. 5. Waited two and one half days to recieve the new part. 6. Reversed the process. NOTE: It really was not difficult at all, and the new part was original equipment so except for the delay in identifying, ordering, and receiving the part the whole process was very quick.

It was easy I unplugged the stove but I left the gas alone. I used a flat head screw driver to take the oven sheet off. Then I unscrewed the oven lighter and the bracket holding it. Then I disconnected it and put the new one on. The hard part was letting the wd-40 dissolve for the rusty screws
