Thank you for your question.

By what you have stated I assume you have the element out but you cannot remove the wires. I know removing the wires can be tricky because they fit so tight. Look and the electrical connector there might be a small tab that has to be pushed to release the connector. If you do not see a tab, the connector should just pull off. I usually use a pair on needle nose pliers on these connectors. On some, the working area is not enough so I used a flat blade screwdriver to push the connector off the element. When you push the connectors onto the new element, they should be a tight fit.

Make sure to tie a string to the wires before removing them. This will help if the wire goes back into the element hole. If the wires go into the hole without string, you have tor remove the back and push the wire through the hole.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
