replacing the rear screen rubber as it is cracked and past its sbd.

the trouble i having trying to refit the screen is that the rubber begins to sag at the top once the bottom of the screen is fitted and snug, but as i get to the top two corners, the top of the rubber begins to sag making it almost impossible to complete ? should i try glueing the top of the screen rubber in first with maybe some screen mastic to hold it ? trouble is this is a one man job as i am on my own. help appreciated, Oh and yes I have seen all the yu tube videos on the subject but they don't help too much.

Thanks

good idea.........done it and it went in easy peasey...just gotta use loads of soapy water and two plastic spatulas.  sems a little bigger than the one i took off, which is a good thing as thhe old one was a little perished and must have shrunk a bit. will fit the sealing strip in after a couple of days just to let it settle. Didn't use the special tool in the end as couldn't get the hang of so made my own out of a wooden soon and a net curtain wire holder eyelet, not quite as big so a little easier to manipulaate.
