Interior Trim (and YES I searched but found nothing)

After fixing my ex-girlfriend's interior trim, mine just fell. But instead of using the cheap stuff to fix mine like I did hers, I want to know whats the correct way to fix it.

You have 2 choices... use the glue, like you did on her's, or replace it (~$200).

I don't mean to revive a dead thread, but I just had mine replaced and it was a bit over $300 just for the drivers side door alone. Don't make the mistake of getting a cheap weatherstrip adhesive. I live in AZ and the adhesive I originally used melted in the heat during the summer. Now I'm going to use 3M Super Weatherstrip & Gasket Adhesive on the other door. Hopefully it won't melt, the product document says it can handle -20F to 300F temperatures so we'll see. I really don't want to shell out $300 again to have something as trivial as interior trim around the doors replaced if I can spend $3.50 and fix it myself.

Try An Autoglass Shop. I Fixed Mine With An Adhesive They Kept Warm In An Oven. That's The Real Way To Fix It.
