Window strip on rear window e90

When I open my boot the plastic strip at the ottom is hanging off the edge of the windscreen - what can I use to stick it again?

Try a good brand of the gel type superglue. I found the cheap china brands a waste of time...

Same here. Bastard thing. One of the previous owners has attempted to use guttering adhesive. It hasn't worked at all.

Watch out and sort it well.

I went in for a normal service to find that the wires had been wrecked due to the loose rubber. Cost a bomb. Not sure what they used.
