Frigidaire Stove Oven/Clock Flat Panel Membrane Replacement

The Clock & Control Membrane on my Frigidaire Stove (that displays the time & has the flush buttons for setting the timer, clock time etc.) has cracked & I obtained a free replacement from the company. I tried to replace it last night and was not successful. I'm looking for suggestions on how to do it properly. The stove is model CFEF313JHS3
After turning off the power, I first tried removing the control panel by unscrewing 7 screws on the back of the stove & tilting the control panel forward. I could see a circuit board where the membrane is located & thought I should remove it to get at the membrane. Bad move!! After unscrewing 5 screws holding the circuit board I noticed some of the round rubber contact pads had stuck to the circuit board and/or fallen off their pegs. That forced me to then label and remove all the wiring running over the circuit board so I could remove the final 2 screw holding the ribbon wire connected clock display and take the circuit board completely off. I could see that there was no way to get at the membrane from the back.
I was successful in re-installing the round rubber contact pads onto their pegs & re-assembling the circuit board back onto its base. I re-connected all the wires & tested the stove. Phew!! it worked.
After again turning the power off I went to the front of the control panel & after pulling the knobs off the six control dials I noticed that each dial had one screw holding on a white cover plate that ran the width of the stove. This plate has the element dial settings, the indicator lights on it for 'element in use' and it also covers the membrane I'm trying to replace. I unscrewed those screws and behind this panel I could see the membrane with a white plastic ring holder running around it.
I'm thinking my next step is to disconnect the wires attached to the indicator lights on this panel to get it out of the way and then pry up on the white ring that runs around the membrane. Then I could remove the old membrane and install the new one (it comes with adhesive on the back).
I am looking for advice if this is the right step to do as I don't want to pry on the white ring & then have it snap.
Thanks, Cindy
