Pella Hinged Door Weatherstrip Replacement


Any of you deal with Pella doors? I have a clad hinged glass door that needs the weatherstripping replaced. The weatherstripping is a single piece that surrounds the door. The instructions are terrible and this is something I have no experience in. I assume you have to take the door off the hinges...and I am not sure how the weatherstripping attaches. They say it just pulls out, but no matter how much tugging I do, it doesn't pull out and I don't want to tear it with 2 months of winter left. Any suggestions?

If it's like Andersen, it will pull out with some help. Grab it with some pliers and pull it. Or call their customer service on Monday and get the straight story.
