    GEN II OEM hardtop weatherstripping has become detached

    The weatherstripping on the rear of my hardtop has detached from the top. It looks like it was attached with some type of adhesive. Whats the best way to reattach it?

    Bob, not sure of the correct adhesive. The replacement weatherstrip kit is still available but they don't give details on how to install, or what else is included besides the trim ring.

    You might want to do a search and look at illustrative video's on other applications.

    good luck, Mike

    Be sure to watch a YouTube vid on how to apply. It is key to apply it properly or it doesn’t stick. Also please let us know how it turns out.

    Success! I was able to reattach the rear weatherstripping with the 3M product. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the suggestions and input!
