New canister filter gaskets

Does anyone have any experience putting new gaskets on a filstar xp3 canister filter ? I am getting two of them with broken gaskets as a trade for my 30 gallon tank ?

I haven't used that model but I found terrific instructions for care and cleaning of my gently used Eheim on You Tube. Have you looked there?

Youtube has several guides, but it is pretty straight forward. I replaced both the gaskets on my XP2. Took me about 5 minutes for both.

Got the gaskets on Ebay, cheaper than planetrenadirect.com
