    Have you checked the Tech Tips forum? There are at least 2 tutorials. One is a video.

    To each his own.....I've done this job twice already.
    I think you may have to replace the entire gasket, it is more of a large ring type, not like a conventional flat gasket. I can see a leak happening if if was not back in the groove when you tightened the cover back up.

    Re: tcc solenoid need help asap

    i know im never gonna be able to replace the entire gasket with it in the car so when i get the new one im just gonna cut it at the top work it all around the groves then at the top where the cut meets silicone it.... also before i do any of this the new solenoid i received the connector at the top moves side to side? is that normal? i have it installed and plugged in im just curious because if i went threw a week of not having a car and put it all back together and it isnt fixed im gonna be one very unhappy person.

    I think you can replace the gasket in the car. It looked to me like it would slide over the cover, and it will actually stay in the groove better in one piece than if you cut it and siliconed it. The connector does move a little bit side to side. On both the ones I did the connector was broken off.
