Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your appliance?

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.
For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.

The door seal pulls off and the new one will push back on but the exact process depends on the model of fridge, but should fit just like any other normal fridge seal.

You can source a replacement seal here but will need to know the model of Thetford fridge.

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know.
