Here is the trick. Get a putty knife, and on the top part of the bottom panel, about 5 inches in on the left side is a clip. Push the putty knife inside the clip, and it will release the front on that side. Do the same on the other side. Also when you replace the element, there is a 1/4 inch screw between the two element terminal, that also holds the element in place. When you pull the old element out, hold on to the tube that the elemnt slides into with the other hand. Use a pliers to pull the old one out. It is hard sometimes to pull out. Tom

I usually grab the metal part with a pliers, and be sure you take out the 1/4 inch screw out in between the the two element terminals. Pull hard, and you will have it. Tom ********************************************

unfortunately, with all of the pliers we have and basically destroying the ceramic coil holders, I have not found a device that has the length and angle to pinch that clip. I'll just have to keep trying and destroying. Thank you for all your help. Aside from you handing me pliers or telling me a style that I actually need, I just need to keep trying.
