When replacing a bad gasket do you glue it on or what is the best way to adhese it to the preexisting rubber... v2240 food saver

Hi jab500...
I would recommend a good adhesive such as 3m Weatherstrip Cement or Contact Cement to glue the gasket in place. Use a small amount of cement, in case you want to replace the seal in later times.
By glueing the gasket in place with cement it will not come loose during use.

I have 1998 bmw 323 the rag top has a few small snags in it. No tears just small snags that I dont wanrt getting worse.

If you don't want to hand sew the top then cloth adhesive will work to keep loose end from unravaling further. depending on the fabric and color I like a very small amount of either goop, contact cement, or a very small amount of superglue. for best results make a small repair in a not to noticable place and let it completely dry. then see what it looks like. if you don't like it don't do that again. Sometimes with contact cement you can hand mold the loose pieces after the glue starts to dry. goop dries a little quicker so you need to work pretty quick. superglue is the hardest to work with but done carefully it will give you the longest lasting and least showing result. be extra carefull not to get the glue on anything and make very small repairs one at a time.

It rattles....even with the grill off....sounds like tubes rattling but I can't tell

There could be a small tear in the plastic liner over the speaker. If thats the case you can try pressing some cotton on it and then put the grill back in place, or find some fabric glue and glue a thin peice of fabric over the tear.

If the tear is large, or the speaker cone is brittle because of age, you might be best off having the speaker completely reconed. There are companies that offer the service, or you can buy replacement cones and do it yourself.

For small tears (an inch or so long), you can glue a patch in place. I have used a piece of a paper coffee filter as a patch, and plain white Elmer's glue slightly thinned with water. Put the patch over the tear and use a small brush to spread a thin layer of glue over it. Give it a day to thoroughly dry and you should be set.

I have found this repair to be more effective on smaller speakers than on large woofers, though. The woofer cones are more mechanically active. But I patched a couple of 15-inch cones that had been punctured for a friend, and they are still playing after a year. So it can't hurt to try.

97 tiburon sunroof seal is unglue- do i need to replace or can i do it myself..

Auto parts store, Weather strip adhesive. Make sure clean surface very well. Wipe down with enamel paint thinner (small amount), let dry. Apply adhesive sparingly, very messy if you use to much. Put seal in place and if you can, close your sunroof to hold in place while drying. Let set for a couple of hours and that should do it. P.S. the glue comes in yellow or black.

When you run a wash there is some water on the tile floor. I found the rubber gasket inside the door is torn.

If the tear is small, try using silicon glue to repair it--clean the surface of the boot and apply the glue. Let dry for 24 hours before using the machine. If the tear is large, the boot must be replaced. It can be done from the front without removing the cabinet, but it's tricky. These tears usually occur when trying to remove jeans and a metal button catches the rubber.
