After unpacking the new gasket, I laid it in the sun to warm up and become flexible. Then I removed the freezer and refrigerator doors (removing the freezer door was necessary in order to remove the refrigerator door). Then I laid the refrigerator door flat on the door, and loosened the nuts securing the gasket. I removed the old gasket. Starting at the door's bottom corner, my wife and I worked the new gasket into place, tightening the nuts as we progressed. Fitting the corners in place was the trickiest step. Then we fitted the sides, and finally the top. (I reasoned that if there were any slack, it would be best at the top.)
