You'd need to take the sliding panel sash out of the frame, and then try and figure out what they used for weatherstripping by sliding out a piece and carefully measuring it. They usually have a fin that slides into a t-slot type track. The size of the fin and the thickness of the bulb or pile is pretty critical to figuring out what sort of replacement parts you need, so there is pretty much no way we can tell you what you need without being there with a micrometer or being able to see, hold, and compare your weatherstrip with the 5 or more different kinds that a glass shop might have in stock. If the weatherstrip is on the moving panel, I would suggest you put it in a truck and take it to a glass shop and see what they can do for you. If it's on the fixed panel, its a little more complicated to pull that fixed panel sash out of the frame, but you could do that same thing with it, provided you can figure out how to pull it out of the frame. Doing this yourself, and taking it in will save you the labor of a service call, paying someone to come out... look, then come out a 2nd time to repair.
Thanks for the reply Pulpo! Ya, I wasn't thinking it would be any problem if the flashing wasn't adhered to the vertical surface under the door as long as water can run off of it. I just wanted to tap the minds that would know better and make sure. One of my questions about it being necessary was if the flashing should be adhered tot he surface to keep anything from getting behind it, (insects, wind blown rain, water from garden hose spray, etc). Though not likely any of these things I could think of would necessarily be a problem, I still wanted to run it by anyone who would know no issues for sure.
I doubt those other things will cause any real problems. Just keep an eye on it for now. See what happens.
