Start by loosening each of the screws holding the white inner part of the door to the rest of the door under the flap of existing gasket. Do not completely take the screws out or the door will come apart making the job much harder. Once all screws are loose, the gasket should pop out.

To install the new gasket push the beaded edge back into the crack. You may need to loosen the screws a little bit more to push it in. After it's all the way in, tighten all the screws back up. Be sure to make sure the inner part of the door didn't slide down when all the screws where loose. If it did, the door may not close properly. To fix this, lift up the inner door while the screws are loose, hold it in place, and tighten a few of the screws. It also helps to empty the shelves in the door.

One other helpful item. I taped a large piece of cardboard to the fridge while I was working on the door to keep it as cold as possible.
