Door Rubber Attachment

Post by dat5102dr » 25 May 2017 12:03

Do I use a adhesive to attach rubber on the doors both inner and outer?

inner and outer?

The doorseals attach both in the channel and freely via weather stripping adhesive. Install them into the channel and make sure the placement is correct. Then follow the manufacturers directions for applying the adhesive. You do not simply squirt it on and hold it. You have to apply thin layers to both the door and the seal and let it tack up. Then you apply some to the door and stick the seal to the door and it will stay where it's placed.

depends on how much paint is in the channel. if the paint is thick the glass will bind @ the corner folds. 3 out of 4 seem fine. I have not glued my felts or cut the corners if I find they do not relax I may do so latter

Its really difficult to see what you got going on with those photos. Can you post some photos of the opposite side so we can see how the seal is installed. Hard to tell, but from the way seal is slanting towards the inside of the car you might have it installed incorrectly. Again hard to tell from those photos but I believe thats why the top corner might be causing you a problem.
