Repair proceeded as described by others, and is indeed very easy to do. My replacement of these parts was a bit of a gamble, since it has been very hard to identify exactly where the small leak I had was coming from. Happily, the new parts do not seem to leak as before, despite being nearly identical in appearance to the 25-year old parts being replaced. Is it possible that the old black rubber injector had lost some of its flexibility, or no longer aligned itself properly inside the clear plastic housing assembly when water was flowing? Another trouble spot is the point where the injector hose joins the water inlet valve. If you remove this hose while doing your repair, be sure to check for leaks there. I made sure the hose clamp fit exactly back in to the indentations it had made in this hose, and even wrapped a few turns of Teflon tape around the water inlet valve fitting before putting the injector hose back on. Hope this helps..
