I slid the unit forward, removed the screws from under the control panel. Then removed one screw each from the underside of each end cap. That only released the bottom of the end caps. The tops seemed to be attached as well.The end caps seemed to be held on from under the stove top which I could not figure out how to remove. The stove top seems to over lap the top edge of the control panel as well. One of the burners (the one we use most often) comes off easily. The others are pretty stubborn.
