My inside window rubber has fallen down inside the door, just wondering if anyone knows what is the best glue to buy to stick it back on, i did try some crap i had hanging around here but it was piss weak.

thanks

G'Day Rony, Just my opinion, but the damn things fall off pretty soon after you stick them back on...plus it's a pain glueing them and trying to attach back correctly....also the rubber shrinks and goes hard thru age. I've left mine in the bottom of the door. Our cars are old enough now and have enough rattles/squeaks so what's a bit more noise.
Good Luck.

Good day hako, yeah I agree they are getting a bit old these days, i will try to stick it back on though, if it comes off again stuff it then, I had the same trouble with one of my older cars, the guy who put it back on told me not to use the window for a couple of days to give the glue a chance to really set, it worked but don't know the type of glue he used.

thanks mate.

contact cement, or sikaflex...

but let it cure for as long as you can before you start using it again...

I've found that 5 minute epoxy works well. Using some masking tape looped so the sticky side faces away from the flocking helps hold the rubbers in place while the adhesive sets.
