Jim,

First, get the seal back on the panel, without the spring and wire. The panel has a raised lip that the  seal fits over. That lip is also where the wire and spring hold the seal.It's easy and takes a couple minutes or less. Take your time .When it's on right, the rubber will be covering the lip, and you will be able to close and latch the door.

Second, now you need to get the spring and wire clamp back on. It would help to have an extra hand. you need to get the clamp over the rubber and metal lip while keeping everything in place. It's kinda like putting a tire on a bike rim. Get a couple screwdrivers and start working the clamp around the seal. It's a bit of a fight, that little spring has some tension.I usually put the spring on top, they seem to seal betting that way.

It's kinda hard,but worth the effort
