HP 6L Fuser Replacement

How hard is it to replace an HP 6L Fuser? I can't find instructions anywhere. Got the printer cover off, and removed the 2 screws on the part with the yellow "Caution! Hot Surface", but I can't lift that part out to get to the fuser underneath.
There is a plastic guide on the right side above the plate you're trying to remove. There is a push button latch on the outside. Push it in with your finger and slide it forward. You can then remove the cover plate. There are 2 screws holding down the metal plate and a couple of metal tabs. There is a plastic wire cover on the bottom right that pops off and a connector at the bottom right rear of the printer. There's also a connector at the left of the fuser assembly and it lifts straight up and out.

Plastic guide on the right side removed, 2 screws holding down the plate removed, but cover plate won't come off. Rocks back and forth but won't lift out.

Nevermind, I got the cover out. Apparently it is latched by two metal tabs in the front bottom of the cover. Had to pull towards me and then up to get the cover out. No problem! I think the fuser may still be good. Looks like the plug in the right rear of the printer may have just become unplugged. I went ahead and replaced the fuser anyway (since I already ordered one and I was already there). The printer is about 3 years old. I'll keep the old fuser just in case. They say those are common parts to fail (from what I've heard) I wonder why they don't make them easier to get to. Still, pretty easy job.

Thaaaanks for the help!

Do you have the part number for the fuser handy? It's not listed anywhere here in the parts lists.

Thanks
