Entry door shock and threshold plate
I need to replace the Ball stud for the gas shock on the entry door. My wife fell through the door and broke both the ball in the door and on the threshold of the door frame (yes she is ok now). I was able to pull the bottom of the door off and reinforce where the stud attached by riveting another piece of metal on the inside of the bottom of the door.
On the threshold however I cannot figure out how to get the bottom piece off to replace the stud. I did put a new stud on the door and I have a new gas shock however I cannot remove the stud nor the threshold plate.
My question is, is the thresh hold plate part of the entire door frame or is there a way to get it off? I do not see anything attaching it or how it fastens in there.
Any recommendations on removing the stud without removing the threshold plate. It is pretty close quarters to try and use a saw to remove it, I'm afraid of doing more damage than good.
Any ideas are welcome thank you in advance.
