The part arrived It said to warm it to take out wrinkles but not even a picture of how to take off the old or put on the new. Everything on the internet in general about gaskets explained about unscrewing the old gasket but I couldn't find any screws. The user feedback mentioned no tools and that was our only clue and the only reason we finally succeeded. We looked at it repeatedly over 5 days. Pulled and pushed and could not figure out how it was attached or how to unattach without breaking things. I finally got out a screw driver and tried to pry it off. An hour later I got a corner piece started to come off. We pulled all the way around and got it off easily once started. We again struggled to put the new one on. Couldn't really tell what area of the gasket fit back into the crease. It kept falling off. Finally we pushed the correct edge of the gasket into the crease. VERY difficult. Fat edge fits into skinny crease. Took a lot more strength than expected so it didn't seem right but it was. Took a while and a lot of strength to work the corners and sides in. Eventually got the whole thing on. A picture and 4 sentences would have been a big help. Wouldn't try it again. To anyone else...No screws. Use a lot of strength. I hope someone publishes a picture for you.
