Tim,
I changed the two gromets recently. I just emptied the reservoir and pulled it off. You will notice that you old gromets are cracked and spongy. Pull them off and put the new ones on. Try to keep the area clean and not to contanimate the fluid left in there. The new gromets are very hard to get on becuase of the tight fit. Just push down really hard and you should be fine. Top up with new fluid and thats it.
