You cannot use silicone. You will do all the work and as soon as you close the lid for the first time, it will separate again

You have to get the 3M stuff made for gluing in windshields.

3m "window weld" is what I use. $15 a tube at your local AUTO shurwin williams paint store. You also have to get a HEAVY DUTY calk gun... the $12 one at home depot. The little cheepy ones just bend under the pressure you need to push that sutff.

You could use Urethane (caulking gun applied) or Beuttle (sp?) tape (comes in a roll) 3M makes both I believe.

It sounds like you are talking about the metal trim around the glass, but I am not sure. I have heard that if the glass has separated from the metal frame its hard to fix.

If you are talking about the rubber seal around the body, I did not have any luck glueing it. It actually requires no adhesive. I did not realize this untill I purchesed a new one since the old one had been previously glued. I thought more adhesive would fix the problem, but I never could get it to seal properly.

Gerneral Purpose Adhesive Cleaner is the name of the stuff to get the glue off. in the shop where we installed sunroofs we called it prep solvant. part number is 051135-08984. i love the stuff. didnt hurt the paint when we used it either. when we really needed to clean something that wasnt around paint we used paint thinner but thats risky. you can buy a can od it at NAPA.

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

I had very good luck installing 1/4" JC Whitney foam rubber weatherstrip alongside my new hatch seal.

You shouldn't need adhesive on hatch weatherstrip

REPO,
This is the actual glass hatch fitting inside the metal edging, not the weather stripping

isn't it the metal stripping that typically leaks, or is it just the seal?

Normally leaks occur at a broken/cracked seal unless the frame is separating from the glass. Then there would be a hole for the water to come in.

do a lot of hatches only leak because the actual rubber seal is bad?

Gordon,

besides seals my hatch was separating from frame at top edge. I put tape under seam inside then filled gap with flowable hardening silicon; worked well

then cosmetically hid repair; easier to do than removing and clamping

to DS, my guess is a bigger problem with bad rubber is exhaust in cabin
