First, the magnetron if you haven't already. If you have the part, then you need to uninstall the entire microwave and set it on the counter. Remove all the screws coming in from the sides and around the edges coming in from the back of the microwave. The entire outer shell will then pull straight back, up, and off. Some of the screws will require a T-20 SAFETY torx bit so you may need to get a new bit to remove these screws. Once the outer shell is removed, you can remove the magnetron through the right side which is mounted by 4 bolts. We are on the honor system here.
