  1. Remove the gauge (brass, chrome) with the attached coupling (brass, chrome).
  2. Remove the 2 spring c-clips on the glass shield covers.
  3. Remove the 2 glass shield covers (brass, chrome).
  4. Loosen the 2 nuts (brass, chrome), one on the top and one on the bottom of the glass.
  5. Once
    loosened, slide the glass upwards out where the gauge was fitted.
  6. Remove
    the 2 loosened nuts, then replace the gasket seals.
