I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'change the order' is the definition.
'rearrange' can be an answer for 'change' (I've seen this before). I am not sure about the 'the order' bit.

'the back stove' is the wordplay.
'the back' becomes 'rear' (synonyms).
'stove' becomes 'range' (synonyms).
'rear'+'range'='REARRANGE'

'of' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for rearrange that I've seen before include "resort", "Organise another way", "Order differently", "Change things", "Rear anger (anag.)".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
