To begin with just I am like the gaskets, I'm a 62 yr. old woman and I too am old and out of shape. Main reason it took so long. I used the drill motor to remove the screws located under edge of gaskets. Pulled the door panel off, removed old gasket from the freezer part first. Had to remove the freezer door in order to replace panel. The door was a bit heavy but I made it. Then I removed the refrigerator panel the same way. Removed old gasket and replaced it with the new one. (It still has a few kinks that I couldn't remove) I couldn't remove the door , so I put 2 screws in the top of the door panel to hold it in place and worked my way around the panel. Screws on the bottom were the hardest (Too low for old people). Both doors are working fine now and I don't have to purchase a new refrigerator/freezer. God is Great
