It isn't as simple as just pushing the new gasket into the retaining track. It has to be seated correctly by pushng the retainer strip all the way into track inch by inch using a thin blade tool like a butter knife. Very tedious and hard to see if it is seated properly without someone holding a flashlight. I had about 12 inches left to go on the lower left side but a 3 inch long strip of the gasket kept rolling over on its edge as it wasn't seated in far enough, but it was!
