Default Best glue that holds the trim around door?

The trim is hanging down around the window. Super glue does not seem to hold after a while. Any other suggestions?

i tried other kinds of glues (this was 3 years ago) but nothing seemed to work well. it's the type of rubber used and the really small area where it's breaking away that's the problem. since that trim is part of the seal, it will stretch/contract when you open/close doors and with temp changes....

best advice i can give is get it replaced....sorry don't know of any adhesive that will work for long.

look specifically for Weatherstripping glue, seems that holds the best in the hot temps.

I need to do my driver's side!

I believe I used some small amounts of silicone. I rolled the windows down so that I could use tape to hold the trim in place while it set over night. Did that a year ago on passenger side and it held perfectly all summer through high heat.

Any good WEATHERSTRIP ADHESIVE should do the trick if applied properly.
