iv noticed one of the rear door seals on my car has started coming away from the door. it looks like its stuck on with some type of glue.  i want to refix it before it gets worse and hangs off.   has anyone any idea which glue/sealant would be best to use.

Stuck mine with super glue. OK so far.

thanks guys. seems any adhesive then.

I'd suggest leaving the door open for a while to dry; perhaps obvious but nobody said; 

Tiger seal is what I would choose; because it remains flexible when fully cured. Much like chewing gum has a small bit of flex left in it.

Have the same problem on my Mk4, booked into main dealer on Friday to have it replaced under warranty.

Yep, coming off on RH front door of my MK4 too.

TVM have probably costed out the spirit wipe process prior to fit.

Ever had a 306?  I snapped the driver's door handle off 3 of those damn cars.  Only one was in ice lol!!  It's not like I'm particularly strong either...thankfully tech moved on to the tougher pull handles instead of the old flat lifters lol. :biggrin:

That's the French and their bio-degradeable plastic. I'd never buy another French car. :shocking:

I broke the door handle on a Mondeo trying to get it open when the door was frozen shut. Since then, at the start of each winter I give the rubber door seals a coat of Gummi Pflege. Never had a door frozen shut since.
