Hello all!
I have use of a car for a year...with the stipulation that I keep up on the repairs. The rear window has a slight issue...the finishing molding has come unglued from the top of the window....I can slide it back into its grove...but it comes out as soon as I drive against the wind. What sort of glue can I use to secure it?

    This may not /probaly not, be a glue on part, but held on by clips, which sometimes rust and go bad. look closely, if it's clips you can get new ones at many auto supply stores, or a dealership.
    If the part in question is about 1/2 " wide metal, and fits down "inside" of the center of the rubber ring around the window. then it is a expander strip that pushes the rubber apart to seal the window. In this case you may not be getting the expander all the way into the rubber. all of this requires a " hands on", by someone with somewhat educated hands.
    Hard call to make with no more info to go on.
