I took the old one out and put the new one in. I want to take this time to tell you that I have repaired a few of my appliances with very little difficulty and a much lower price than Kitchen Aid charges. One was a Micrwave vent, knobs on a stove top, little rubber knobs on the bottom of a grate of my cook top which was triple the cost from what I paid to Parts Select and the water seal on a dishwasher. Thing wear out and need to replaced; however most of these things can be repaired by the consumer.

The trick is to align the bottom and top tabs first. This take a little coaxing and patience, but once these snap in, the tabs with the threads line up perfectly.

TIP: Thread the screws into the metal tabs while supporting the tabs with your hand BEFORE installing the grille, back them out, and then install. The threads were a little tight, and putting a lot of pressure on them while the tabs are in the slots risks breaking them off.

Replace vent grill and filters.

I went online and found the manual for this appliance and used the instructions, which were very helpful. The filters just pop out and the new ones fit right in. No tools were needed. For the vent grill, it was necessary to move the metal tabs back and forth a few times manually before they were properly placed in order to take the two screws, which hold the grill in place. I then loosely tightened the screws (so as not to crack the plastic grill)with a Phillips Head screwdriver. When my husband got up from his nap he was pleased to see the job completed without his help.:)

I Removed the vent grill and replaced it with the new grill there were only two screws that needed to be removed then refastened. Total five minutes. I also replaced the grease filters which took about a minute total time. I do many of my own repairs to my home and appliances .I've found your service parts delivery prompt and precise.

First I removed the two screws from the previous grille. When the part came-no screws were included. Second, the plastic hole that was pre-drilled was not open enough so I had to make it open so the screws would fit. Your part fit just great and we are defintely satisfied. I have had to replace this vent grille 2 times-don't think I will have to do this again. Thank you

I got my 5 foot step-ladder and Phillips screw driver and removed two screws that were already there. I discarded the two metal clips because new metal clips are already inserted in the vent grill. I lined-up the vent grill on the microwave and screwed in the two screws. It's a perfect fit.

I'm a 62 year old woman, and if I can do it - anyone can. The vent grill arrived two days after I ordered it.
