At your parts store you can purchase a product called adhesive glue. In the business we call in yellow death. It is made by 3 M company.

Make sure both surfaces are dry, then apply the glue carefully to both surfaces to be glued.
Now, this is important. Bring both surfaces together for a minute, then carefully pull them apart a little distance. You will notice the glue becoming very stringy. Do this several times, as each time the glue will become tackier. The motion allows air to get to the glue, setting it up.
About the 3 or 4 time you will notice it becomes very sticky. That’s when you press the two surfaces together and press firmly against the door. It will be glued. That’s why we call it yellow death.

Be sure that it is the 3M product because there are imitations.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

My Mazda 3 driver side door handle broke. It is locked. How do I get the door panel off?

sorry to say may have to cut into the panel to gain acces that way , try to remove the window weather strip outside and slide a thin but rigid piece of wire with a bend on the end to try and release the door lock , aka car thief style , or buy something called a SLIMJIM , this will slide behind the weather strip so won't even have to remove that

1995 Saturn SC2 leaks when it rains - Water comes in from passenger side (upper frame) and somewhere in the trunk. Put silicone gel on the foam stripping, did not stop the water. Replace the door and trunk...

You can actually find NOS weatherstripping for old Saturns at getsaturn At least I was able to buy a new one for a 94 last year. It is a website for a Maryland dealer who sells at below regular cost. I have had 5 saturns and they never sold me a bad or wrong part. You could also look around on ebay, but what you would find there is another used leaky one.

Replace window

what do you need to know? the small passanger window or door window?
if you are replacing the door window then you need to remove the doos cover on the inside of the car. Then remove the old window base from the tracks. Slowly slide the new window in ( removing the weather stripping on one side) once the window is in roll the windoe all the way down and replace the weather stripping

Weather strip replacement

The door is filling with water? If this is the case then the best way to dry this up is to remove the inner door panel and dry the water up. With the inner panel off this good time to replace the seal. Please keep me info how you make out
