Mine would not slide - no way (painter painted in the metal channel).

This worked for me:
Lube copiously with soapy water. Get some of it started by pushing with a screwdriver flat blade or similar. Insert a hook tool into the area between rubber and metal (the top one) and pull or push along while holding the bottom ridge on the rubber in the channel. Use a larger chrome hook tool such as the Snap-Off brand (the chrome is smoother).

I did it in about an hour of back wrenching work due to the position - a lift would be nice.

Offer the strip to the metal first and watch out for moving it too much to one side -- it may slide back once in the channel. Also, clean dirt out of the channel first.

Use a new rubber seal BTW.
