Please accept this answer to remove it from the work queue - and re-post with the exact seal you are looking to replace for more accurate help.

There are Permatex brand sealants for different applications... however some types of gaskets only require a bit of gasket adhesive.

Thanks for using Fixya :D

On my 1991 S-10 the left side window has seporated from the regulator and does not track up and down


Hi Terry

first get your door panel off get all the screws and handles off bottons and pry easy from behind the bottom panel to pop off the plastic holders in the door assembly, then lift off the door move and insulation or plastic cover over the openings of the door. Now you will see the window and the trac what need is a very strong bonding glue the same Glue maybe at our automotive supply store, or that window repair place shops use, if you can get a tube of that you make sure your track is clean leave the felt that you find in the trac, do not remove it,,, fill the trac with a bead of this special silicone or bonding agent once you locate it,, thats when you should attempt to put the window back in the track when doing so put glass in the tract which is filled with this bond silocone type type glue lineup everything and wind the window up along with the window and make sure the window goes deep into the trac and is tight up in the closed pssition u maywant to put a block of wood just before raising the window so you can make sure the glass bottoms out in the trac remove block, and lock window in position dont use your window for a week just to be safe,,, it should cure and wont pop out of the tract, pay attention if your trac is not broken or screws or assembly came loose. You can fix tis no problem im sure

How do you install the drivers side window in a 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport? Already removed interior door panel, bottom window molding, and screw & washer from regulator, Can't understand how to get...


Most door glass slides in from the top **** in the door. Sometimes the window seal around the window frame may have to come out and can be re-installed after you secure the glass to the track. You may have to insert the glass at an odd angle to fit it thru. Be sure to have the door panel off so you can access the track screws(bolts) and make sure you do or don't have to bond it with adhisive. A great bonding agent for this is gorilla glue, tested and still working on my friends 93grand cherokee. Good luck.

The (plastic? rubber?) trim strip running along the roof and body of the car appears to be loosening. During an overnight heavy rain it must have leaked on the left side since the driver's seat was...


Actually, your idea is very close to what the car dealership would do, but not tell you that's what they did. Just make sure you wipe the area(s) clean with rubbing alcohol and do not use any type of conditioner to the pieces that will have silicone placed around\under them as, this will prevent the silicone from making a proper seal and you could lose your rubber pieces going down the road.

Once you have put your silicone in and have put your rubber pieces back into their grooves, give the silicone 24 hours to set. This way, the bond is tighter and this should also fix your leaking issue.

Hope this helps.

Help...i am trying to install a new "glass" only driver's side mirror on my 2004 prius


To replace the mirror glass you need a small tube of bathtub silicon, some black tape and a couple of wooden blocks or shims. Clean the back of the mirror with glass cleaner first and put a good bead of silicon all the way around the back of the mirror about half an inch from the edge. Push it in place and using the shims tape it in place.Stretch the tape as you put it on to keep pressure on the mirror and to make a good bond with the silicon. Leave it for 24 hours and then remove the tape. Hope this helps.
