How do I replace an overflow tube in a one piece glacier bay toilet

I have a nearly 10 year old glacier bay one piece toilet.  I've replaced the fill valve and the flapper, but the gasket around the overflow tube is corroded and clearly disintegrating.  The toilet as a result slowly leaks water from the tank into the bowl and periodically will refill itself as if it flushed.

Buy a rebuild kit, turn off water, drain tank then you will have to remove the tank from the toilet.  Once you have done that you will see the large plastic/metal (depending on age) nut that holds the overflow tube to the bottom of the tank, just replace all parts with new including seals around tank bolts.

 

Best guide I can find for first timers:
