Question about Rancilio Silvia Espresso Machine
If it's leaking already, you may have a tough time of it. For the Rancilio, you'll first have to remove the shower screen screw, shower screen and nozzle block (they all should come out together when the screw is out). Then you need to "carefully" pry the old one out. By carefully I mean try not to scratch or gouge the brass inner ring. You may have to chisel it out with a pick or screwdriver depending on how hard it has gotten. Make sure that you get all the pieces out, then polish the gap with a small wire brush. Install the new gasket evenly with the bevel (if it has one) up. Sometimes you can use the group handle to seat it all the way. Then replace the nozzle (after cleaning it), screen (should be a new one) and screw. Don't over-tighten it! Violin! You're done!
