    Garage door bottom seal question ?????

    I have a Overhead brand 390 series garage door on the house attached garage. It needs a new bottom seal. Looks like critters were chewing at it. The online sellers call it a bulb seal. The new bulb seals look roundish and no flat areas . The OE seal looks like more of a D with a small lip on the bottom. I assume they changed the style?? It appears to mount the same way. I`m hoping the bottom piece unscrews so it will install pretty easy. Yea or Nay? I ordered this seal on amazon

    Chances are it'll be fine as soon as it's compressed. One of my doors needed a new bottom seal also. The new one was round while the old was flat. It slides into a pair of "T" slots on the bottom of the door and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what a PITA that was to put in! Maybe if I'd have done it a month earlier, when it was more than 15 or 20 degrees out. Dang my fingers were cold, lol.

    I tried to find a video on my style on you tube. No luck. Mine has only one slot and it may have a retainer that holds it in place. I haven`t taken it apart yet. I`m waiting until the seal gets here before I do.
