The microwave light bulb on this 20+ years old Whirlpool Oven/Microwave wall-mounted combo ModelGMC305PDB2 has failed. I need to figure out how to pull out the microwave to replace the light bulb on top.
I had seen a video some 10 years ago but can't find it any longer.

EDIT: Found a fairly close video
here and accessed the light bulb. The circuit indicates it is the only item using the 12V output of a dedicated transformer.
Steps:
1- Remove two screws holding each of the side trims. Pry the trim out by sliding it down.
2- Remove the two side screws to disengage the interface panel.
3- Remove the microwave vent grill.
4- Remove the oven vent grill.
5- Remove two screws holding the microwave in place. Pull the microwave about 1/2 way out.
6- Remove the spring clip holding the lamp assembly.
7- Replace the halogen lamp without touching its surface with bare hands.
8- Follow the steps in reverse to put everything back together.
