Just got an '87 325is. It's my first non-junker/non-economy car. I also started (just last year) trying to fix stuff myself rather than pay someone else $$$ I don't have. So, here's a simple do it yourself question:

The seal between the driver's side window and the interior of the door has come loose about halfway across the window. I can't roll the window down! The local auto parts store sold me some weather stripping adhesive, but it just left a gooey strip between the metal and rubber. I cleaned it off and am back to square one. Can anyone tell me how to wedge that rubber piece back in place and affix it?

Thanks!

Is it the seal at the top or the bottom of the window?

It's on the bottom so that when the window is rolled down the rubber piece rolls toward the window. Part of the problem is that I have a hard time wedging that rubber up far enough to make contact with the metal all the way across. The adhesive I was sold seemed to take forever to dry and ended up being more of a goo than a solid adhesion.

I thought it would be pretty easy to fix first before I jump into a couple trickier things!

I used a Permatex weather stripping adhesive and it worked perfectly.
Use latex gloves to apply a thin coat and then hold it on overnight with duct tape.
Follow the instructions carefully

do it right, quit trying to getto it with glue.

remove your door panel and have a look see.......it's right in there with the chrome strip. you may end up having to replace that seal, or you can simply remove it for the time being.

i may have one off my parts car at home that is good, i will check.
