I removed the door gasket first by sliding it out.Then I pulled the door seal out. It suggested removing the springs,very hard to find and do, so we left them in place and did not use two parts of the kit because they were still good.
Putting in the door seal was a bit tricky because we had to use something to push it into the groove.That was the reason for the credit card. It was easier to push it into groove rather than doing it with a screw drive for fear of punacturing a hole in the rubber gasket. It worked well. Then we kept checking to see if the door shut properly, It was tight at first, but seemed a little better after adjusting the seal a bit.No leaks after that.
