1. Remove the door panel.  Lay some type of protection on the surface that you are working on.  Tip the panel edge and remove the old sweep from the bottom rail.  Clean off any old sealant on the bottom rail of the panel.


2. Apply a new bead of silicone sealant along the outside edge of the bottom rail of your door panel.  Also apply a new bead of silicone to the new sweep as shown below in the picture with the arrows.



3. Now attach the new sweep using galvanized nails to secure it to the door panel bottom rail.  Clean off any excess silicone that may squeeze out.


4. Reinstall the operating panel.  To prevent any water leakage, place a small cap bead of clear silicone sealant between the lip of the panel sweep and the panel.
