      Yesterday was my special day for this. Got the car home (after 4 qts) and found the leak.

      Replaced mine yesterday and it was not too bad except for some light rain as I did this in the driveway. My seal came with a couple of ears with holes that located the seal using the nubs on the cooler. Thanks Dan for the documentation.
