I don't see any nuts/screws holding in the door seal. Do you just pull the old seal off? The drain hose from the back wall to the pan at the bottom of the fridge is clear.
On what do you use the 1/4" nut driver?

old strips must be reinserted in the groove on the new gasket...take yer time and work in a se@tion at a time while inserting a screw loosely here and there to keep it in place.
when you open the new gasket, it will be a wrinkled mess...give it a hot bath in the tub and then lay out flat to reform before reinstallation

Yes, but what about the Door Seals ?
I use heat guns, vasoline, and a hot bath in the kitchen sink.

For what it's worth, SubZero put an instruction sheet with that gasket that specified using WARM, not hot water, to soften the gaskets. If you use a hair dryer, they want it 12 to 18 inches away. Apparently the new ones are more sensitive; all my senior techs were telling me to put them into the bathtub with the hottest possible water.
What is the simplest, dumbest explanation? Because that's the most probable one.
