Tools: Screw driver, not drill unless on very low torque setting, and sealant (4200 or silicone).
1. Remove the gasket retaining strips and be careful not to break them. 2. Remove the old gasket. 3. Lay the new gasket and mark or punch the holes. 4. Place a small amount of sealant in holes. 5. Lay the new gasket out and reinstall the retainer.
Pro tip: if you have the older, metal style retainers, you can cut a piece of firm plastic (old bailer works great) 1.5-2in long and wide enough to fit under the retainer, to fit on the leading edge of the gasket to make it last a little longer.
