Rear hatch rubber molding

The rear hatch molding on my '87 944 has separated as shown in the pictures. I did a search and found recommendations for window adhesive for sealing the glass but I'm not sure if that is what is needed for this molding. I also checked Pelican parts and they also list two products. Any help you can provide as to which adhesive I should use and what the molding is supposed to be bonded to will be appreciated.
Thank you for your help, Uncle Ray

Those pieces bolt to the hatch. Open your hatch and look underneath. Hopefully you're just missing a couple screws and nothing is stripped out.

take it off and have a look... has a mounting screw fallen out? both of them were loose on the rearmost of those trim pieces on my 944.

if it turns out you need a new one let me know, i've got a few spares lying around.

Thank you for your replies. The metric machine screw with the Phillips head was missing. I dug through the various trays of nuts and bolts in the garage and found a stainless one to match. What were the odds on that? Also took your advise to check the remaining fasteners and found two others that were loose. Fortunately none were stripped. The molding is now back in place and looking good. A little clean up and a dab of black paint to finish it off.
Thanks again to the forum with help and answers, Uncle Ray

good deal! after i found that those were loose on my car, i went to the local hardware emporium and switched all the screws to stainless allen head screws... many of them are rusted into the stainless keepers in the spoilers and moldings after 26 + years, so i figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to switch all the hardware.

if you switch them all out, know that there are 3 or 4 distinct screw size combinations (thread and length)

looks great!

Mike

Just a word of warning.... if you use stainless screws into stainless keepers (nuts, etc) make sure you use anti-sieze compound on the threads. Stainless to stainless mysteriously tends to gall itself, and when you go to remove it, it can sometimes be very obstinet. I've had to cut out such hardware over the years on all kinds of equipment, and it isn't a lot of fun.

thanks for the heads up! i'll definitely look into removing and reinstalling the hardware with some anti-seize!
