The first part I had to send back because it wouldn't fit. You made it easy to return the wrong part. The replacement part also wasn't correct. I was able to modify it to work. Cut off the not needed tabs and screwed in. Thanks for having something that would work.

I removed the two screws, removed the broken grill, popped in the new grill (after I ordered the correct color, did not get the biscuit color I thought I had ordered the first time) replaced the two screws....I was good to go. Strange that the tabs in the first place just fell apart...but reading others, find this seems to be a common problem. Simple as pie.
Unscrewed two screws, fit the grill into place and screwed in two screws.
Partswere here very quickly.I will most definitely order from here again.
Replaced the missing tray and unscrewed a couple of screws to remove broken grille tabs and retightened the screws to hold in the new grille. Very successful and very easy. Thanks
Replaced vent with 2 screws. Very easy.
I, carefully, inserted the bottom tabs into the appropriate slots. I then rotated the vent piece up and into place under the top lip of the Microwave. Once positioned I installed the screws required to hold the piece in place. Very simple replacement. It gave me a chance to clean the grease behind the vent.
old vent off screwed new in less than a minute
Removed the broken parts and screws and placed the new vent on and tightened screws. I am an 76 year old woman, so if I could do this, then anyone can! Surprisingly easy to install.
I have been doing repair on things on my own for years, I am a retired prevenative maintenace supervisor.While cleaning the microwave vent grill from being old it fell apart, so I ordered the part using the internet to find the a company that has the same part, the part didnt take long before I recieved it. It didnt take five minutes to install it, and it saved me cash in the pocket from someone else to do the work. wallen
We took off the old grille - and simply screwed on the new one. Easy peasy.
I removed the broken tabs with a screwdriver and snaped in the new cover replacing the screws once I had it in place. the entire job took less than 5 min.
I simply removed the original 2 screws for the old grill, attached the new grill, fastened it with the original screws & It fit perfectly in less than 5 minutes time.
I remove the old broken Grill Vent by loosing two screws and just put the new one and adjusted with the same two screws.
took old vent grill and tabs off using phillip screwdriver. started putting new grill on and it wouldnt go on. got to looking and there are two more screws that you have to loosen up so the grill will go into place these two screws are between the two tabs at each end. caution do not over tighten the screws it will break the tabs. overall easy to install.
