I popped out all the little plastic rivets for reuse with a needlenose pliers. There was a lot of ice built up in the insulation. I rested the inner lid on top of the freezer box to protect the stuff in the freezer and catch anything I might drop. I used a hair dryer to slowly melt the ice enough to extract it without losing too much insulation (this is why the job took more than 20 minutes). Once this was done, I tucked the insulation into the lid. I fit the new gasket on the new inner lid and placed it into its opening. I then started placing the rivets. I did the corners first to hold it up. I was able to push most of them by hand. For a few I used the edge of my pliers. Good as new.
