Half door lower seal

Hey everybody

The foam door seal is in good shape but slightly falls out of the channel on the bottom of the door. This tends to happen about every 2-3 days. It is very annoying as it is difficult to shut the door without the seal material getting pinched inside. Any advice? I don't see any adhesive or anything.

Contact cement works well and is not a permanent as silicone. That is what a lot of the auto manufacturer's use.

Amazon.com: Permatex 80638 Super Weatherstrip Adhesive - 2 oz.: Automotive

I apply this once every 2 years (depending if it falls off or not) and have been the happiest man alive with that stupid thing since.

Afterall.. that is what it is designed to do.

Take your door off, lay it flat somewhere. The seal fits in a track of sorts. When it's not in the track correctly, it kind of bulges out & catches the body when you close the door.
I used a plastic putty knife to put mine back in. You'll likely find that as you put in one spot, another spot will pop out. That's why I suggest taking the door off. Work your way around to the end of the seal.

Using adhesive to fix it is like using duct tape to repair a plumbing leak.
