If you've verified the old element has failed, set them up sideways next to each other as shown. You will see your new element is missing a piece. Most new elements do NOT come with the high limit thermostat, this will need to be swapped over.

With your 6mm socket remove the bolt holding the high limit thermostat and *gently* pry back the top tab. Again *gently* pull the "L" shaped connector off the element terminal.

Your new element may or may not come with a screw hole for the thermostat. If not pry the tab back and slide it into the hole in the element where the old screw hole was and slide the "L" connector back onto the new terminal.
