I know what you're talking about. The last time I replaced some, I had to use a sharp pick as the tube gaskets were hardened. The tube gaskets came off in hard chunks.

Take a screwdriver(don't tell anyone) and drive the seals out from the top. Use oil on the new seal to facilitate installation. smile
