I loosened but did not remove the screws completly that hold the gasket in place. I removed the old gasket, and installed the new one. With patience and a liberal quantity of WD40 I was able to get the new gasket to seat behind the metal strips that hold it in place. While not the easiest job in the world, with patience it came out ok. Retightened all the screws, checked the gasket with a piece of paper all around with door closed. No leaks.
