    Default Prob with rear window weather stripping, pic inside




    I think in the heat the other day when rolling the window down (it hadnt been opened in about 3 weeks) it was kind of stuck to the glass or something and pulled it... now I have it sticking out a little bit and it looks horrible. It's not leaking because the window goes above it, but I need to fix it asap.

    What do you people think?

    euww. Could only suggest contact adhesive once the surfaces inside are clean with alcohol and both pieces surfaces are tacky.

    Otherwise, trim the offending piece and be done with it.

    Not 100% clear what the problem is..however I've had some similar problems with window seals. It seems that it's usually something is no longer connected/clipped/held right combined with sticky rubber.

    Find out what's come unclippped and also work the rubber tracks with some silicon spray.

    Razor blade, clean the track from sticky things as mentioned.
