Directions were somewhat generic, but clear enough to figure out that I had to remove the toe plate and front cover below the main door to disconnect the two springs that held the door in tension. I then removed the old door seal (really a splash guard), and scraped off some scum. Then I pried apart a metal tab on each side of the door to facilitate lifting up on the two hinge rods on the door to get to the two corner water diverter pieces that really keep the water in the dishwasher. These two pieces deteriorate over time like the splash guard. The reverse assembly process was simple, NO LEAKS.
