Question Need help on installing Dometic RM100 fridge door seals

I have a 1977 Ambassador with a Dometic RM100 refrigerator. I just purchased new door seals from Camping World and cannot find any screws holding the old gasket. Anyone ever changed these seals and know a secret to how to get the old one off? I have called Dometic and Camping World for technical help, but nobody seems to know anything about this old fridge. Airstream manual says that there are screws in the metal plate behind the gasket, much the same as on any other fridge, but I cannot find any screws. Any ideas or suggestions would really be appreciated. What should be a fairly simple task is turning out to be a headache.

Peal the old gasket back away from the plastic inner door and the screws are hidden under the gasket there. The gasket is sandwiched around the plastic inner door.

Dometic RM100 refrigerator door seals

Thanks for the reply. Tried that, but all we can see is a copper colored metal strip -- no screws to be found anywhere. This is a real puzzle. Do you think we have to take the door apart?
