Question about 1998 Mercury Mystique
The srip is loose on one end. about 4 to 6 inched s is not adhered to door. what is the best way to apply adhesive w/oout reomemoving the whole strip?
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.
