I just bought a new door seal (and lower door seal) part #00645141. I pulled the old one out and installed the new one, but it's about 3 inches too short. And I see some people leave a bit of overhang at the ends so it's definitely too short for that. Am I supposed to stretch it? I see even on the Bosch official site it's listed as 70" which is what the one I got is, so not sure what I could be doing wrong. Any help is appreciated!

Hi,

so not sure what I could be doing wrong
Probably nothing.
I noticed the last 2 that I did the new one was slightly shorter than the old one was.
Just fold the gasket in 1/2 and start feeding it in at the top middle so both sides are even and let it go.
The little hang over bits on the bottom did nothing.
