Replacing Door that is stucco'd in

I have a 30" garage door that is stucco'd into the wall. Its old and I really want to replace it. Im debating on spending the extra 60$ on a door. I thought brickmold was for stucco'ing around the door so the door is flush with the stucco and the brickmold is basically flush with the wall. Or is the brickmold just basically a pre-installed door trim?

Any tips or links to videos of removing and installing doors that are stucco'd in without re-stucco'ing it?

Do you have brick mold on the jamb now? If so just cut the nails holding the brick mold to the jamb carefully so you don't mess up the stucco and put a new door with jamb in and screw or using a nail gun, nail the door back in place. Don't use hand nails, there is a real good chance you will mess the stucco up.
It is not an easy job but it can be done.
