can u describe the proper way to remove and replace?
Expert:  John replied 7 years ago.

4 screws holding the trim and timer mechanism.There is 1 Phillips screw holding the timer to remove,and a plastic piece to pull out from the back of the timer.I easily pulled it off,and the timer fell right off.I removed the wiring harness,and removal was done.Installing the timer was a reversal of the process.Slide the timer in place.install 1 screw,snap wiring harness on.push timer dial on,shroud back in place and 4 screws to put back in
