Customer has a set of exterior french doors that have a 3/8" gap directly below the astragal. The astragal has a plactic trim piece at the bottom of the astragal, but the bottom of that piece sits 3/8" above the top of the threshold. There are no manufacturer labels on the door. Picture may help explain what I'm trying to address.

Get a longer door sweep for the Non-operating door. Extend/cut to cover space below the astragal. Staple/glue/fix sweep to the bottom of astragal.

Should be a piece of rubber at the bottom of the astragal from the factory.
Also the adjustable threshold looks like it needs to be raised up some.
The weatherstrip on the bottom of the door looks like it is barely making contact with the adjustable sill.
That's a pretty big gap between the two doors at the bottom. What's the gap at the top of the doors look like?

We determined that a bottom cap on the astragal was missing. Once we got that cap, it was a quick fix.
