I removed the two screws that held the element panel on. I removed the lead wires from the element, making sure the wires didn't retract back into the wall. I put the new element in, reconnected the lead wires and put the screws back in. I was concerned that the panel wasn't as long (top to bottom) as the previous one and it barely covered the hole, but it works fine. It would have cost me $60 to have it done by my home warranty company so I saved almost half.

Oven heat was very uneven.

I removed the screws that held the element in place. This was the most difficult part because clearance was tight between the screws and the element. I gently pulled the element out enough to expose the wire connections. I disconnected the wires and removed the element. Installation was the reverse - connect the wires, re-position the element, re-install the final screws.

Piece of cake to repair. I took both both heating elements off. I sprayed oven cleaner everywhere to soften the grime. I waited 10 minutes and wiped up the softened baking grime. Installation took 5 minutes for each element and about 15 minutes to clean the oven while both elements were removed.
