Removed 2 screws that were holding broken plastic tabs. Lined up lower plastic tabs on new grille into slots, gently. Tipped forward to engage upper tabs into slots. You need to "gently" press the top into place to avoid breaking off the tabs! Replace 2 screws, and hand tighten with Phillips screwdriver. Easier to see what you're doing with the microwave door "open". I felt "accomplished" for a 70-year old Grandma.:)

Not so sure this would qualify as "instructions", but I only needed a screwdriver because the "D" rings of the old vent filters broke off and I had to pry to old ones out. Keep in mind, I am mechanically disadvantaged and can barely change an A/C filter ... that being said, all I did for this order was input my Model number and PartSelect found the correct replacement part. I receive the parts super quick (faster than the other 2 purchases I did that day). The only bummer was the packaging ... super huge box for small tiny parts. Otherwise, I now know where to go for replacement parts. This project should be a "no-brainer" for most DYI's, so getting the right parts with just a model number was lifesaving for me :0)
