this fridge's seal screws seemed to be magnetic.  put a magnet on the socket, but the screws more often went to the magnet, rather than stay in the socket.  of course.  used a bit of masking tape to some degree of success.  oh, yeah, the sagging seemed to be less today.  thought about the slots in the seal for the screws (rather than being holes).. meaning that the seal could be pulled outwards some.  gave it a try, but it didn't seem to want to stretch out easily.  the replacement took about 1hr 5min.  *maybe* a magnetic nut driver, using the drill, and knowing not to tighten down the screw before getting the next part aligned would have saved me the extra 45 minutes...!
