Default Top seal strip coming off, suggestions?

Hello!

See attach, the weather striping seems to be coming off on the top drivers side. Any suggestions for sealing it, what particular glue to use?

I suggest Silicone or RTV Sealant. Widely available at hardware, Home Depot, Lowe's, or Online:

https://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Percent-Silicone-Sealant-Caulk/dp/B01B5RBOA6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1526905064&sr=8-3&keywords=ge%2Brtv%2Bsilicone&th=1&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/Gorilla-Percent-Silicone-Sealant-Caulk/dp/B01B5RBOA6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1526905064&sr=8-3&keywords=ge%2Brtv%2Bsilicone&th=1&psc=1


(see Video) After applying the Sealant I would use Blue Painters Tape to hold it in place until it cures according to the recommended instructions.

good call - why is plastic so expensive? $82 per side

The same exact thing happened to me and I glued them down with a bit of 3M trim adhesive, I wasn't willing to glue down the entire thing so I just glued where it normally attaches to the clip.

It only lasted a couple months so I ended up coughing up the money for new OEM ones, I am in central California so the heat is a bit extreme here so YMMV.
