Replacement Steps

  1. Remove 4 screws (8 screws in total) from each hinge that are attached to the grill's backsplash.
    Remove the Lid.

  3. Install the lid handle with 2 screws/2 washers, and ensure the mica sheet is installed as well - 2 mica sheets (1 on each side of the handle) sit between the lid handle and the lid.
  4. Place the replacement lid on the grill.
  5. Align lid hinge holes with holes on the grill's backsplash.
  6. Secure the lid by attaching the bottom of the lid hinges to the grill's backsplash with 4 screws.

Door Stop Arc Replacement
