Passenger Quarter Glass '13 2SS

Hello,
Haven't posted much as I haven't driven my car a whole lot. I bought it new May of 2013 and I have less than 20k miles. It's a great car. The only thing I've done to it is pop in a Range AFM disabler and swap out the P-Zeros for a set of Michelin AS3+

Today I got to drive it (top down of course) and when I raised the windows something was wrong. The weatherstrip (or whatever you call it) that seals between the door window and the quarter glass came off. It fell down inside the car but I was able to retrieve it easily. When I called the dealer they said that strip is "part of the glass" ie. they don't sell it. It's clearly just "glued on". New window is nearly $300 plus labor plus aftermarket tint match. Crap...but I have the piece.

Any idea of some good adhesive to stick it back on there?

Thanks in advance.

it should be a metal frame with the rubber attched and a press fit on the glass. A good weatherstrip adhesive should work. Check why it came off in the first place - make sure it's not catching.

Mine did the exact same thing. Since there is a lot of pressure on this piece I needed something strong so I used 5 min epoxy. Keep in mind that it needs to seal with the front window so placement when glueing is important.
