Oven indicator lights stopped working

My Repair & Advice
They is a "pilot light" which most repair places said I would need at $25+, but IMHO LEDS are rare to burn out. I took everything apart and verified the LED worked fine, but the base of the lens broke off.
The way this part works is the lens pops through the front of the oven and the LED / Pilot Light slides up and through it which holds it from the back. One of the other lights was much dimmer and although it was lighting up, the lens for that one broke too. I picked up both lens for about 1/3 the price of one LED shipped from this web site and the local pro's wanted about $150-200 to do the job. The longest part of the job was sliding the oven out and back in. Only the top two screws on both sides of the back cover need to be removed. I recommend unplugging the oven, but there is no power going through this part when the burners are OFF.
You only need a 1/4" nut driver for this job.
