IllI'll make a guide next time I get another melted gasket. It is replaceable, but I wouldn't say with ease.. no Id say a 6 out of 10 or more. I've done it about 3 times so far. I was unable to remove the old gasket and the Chinese gasket (L shaped) did not fit the same so I have perfected the replacement (my way) and it works pretty good . Remove the glass, assuming the screen is being replaced, remove the screen. cut the rubber gasket out leaving a flush surface. use a roll of iPad screen tape black or mac tape black is the sturdiest. note when you get to the bottom curve I don't cut that part off but you can if you need to. I use the two sided tape to go around the area where the old gasket came off. Then I stick the new gasket down and put another layer of two sided tape over the flush rubber bottom of the l shaped gasket and the second application helps to hold it in place and give another sticky surface to hold the outer glass down. put everything back together. Tip, use a heat gun adapter to make much less heat exposure and a piece of card board and or heat gun stand to avoid future problems if you have to do it again.

Thanks,It's replaceable, but I wouldn't say it is easy, I'd say a 6 out of 10 or more.

Yes, the rubber sealUse a roll of iPad screen tape (black) or Mac tape (black) is sold in china on eBay and yes it is replaceable.the sturdiest. Note when you get to the bottom curve I don't cut that part off but you can if you need to.
