Every one is different depending on age , if the beading is on the inside then some doors have a wedge gasket you remove on the out side first then this gives you room to get beads free. Some have a captive gasket on the out side and a wedge on the in , remove wedge ect, some have a captive gasket out side and captive gasket on the bead also, these the bead is removed using a stiff scraper type tool that you insert in the join between the door and bead. It comes with experience in telling which system you have , sometimes the gasket is that old it's so hard to remove

Hi looking at the picture it looks like the gaskets are captive to the frame and bead ( hard to tell from a picture for sure ) I would try putting the scraper between the bead and the frame on the long edge . Withe the scraper inserted leaver the scraper away from the bead you should get movement and a gap , once you have started it , it becomes easier and once the first one is off the others come off easier , 2 sides removed first then top and bottom . Pay attention to how they clip into the frame as this will make refitting easier

Probably an idea to remove the catflap before as well...
