The wave guide cover just slots into place on there.

But if its bent or broken then you need to replace it. When you get it just slightly bend it a bit and it will slot into place. When its new it wont break easy when you bend it out so dont worry about that. Just dont bend it too much though.

Daniel I have the part in hand. It is very irregularly shaped. How do I position it to slide it in?
Appliance Technician: Daniel, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

The side that looks more stright slots into the cabinet first then bend it out slightly and you should be able to slot it into place from there.
