On another thread, here is the debate:To "Glue" or-not-to "Glue!

and here is my advice

I see no down side. It can be cleaned up more easily than urethane sealant, using just mineral spirits, and will adjust with the shrinkage and expansion of the seal with weather or over time.

I see no reason not to use it on the front windshield as well (unless you want to use a more permanent glue to stop movement).
If done properly, you shouldn't have to use any sealant, but I like this stuff just in case

They use the same non hardening 3M glazing compound

I am adding it here for future reference

Lets keep this thread for evidence of why to check or replace seals, and use this other thread to debate if they should also include sealant or not here : is the debate:To "Glue" or-not-to "Glue!
I can't wait to see what I do next!...
