The 3 M super weatherstrip adhesive is available almost everywhere.

It's cost is less than $ 15.00 a tube, and will save many headaches if used.

The yellow adhesive DOES NOT do the job, long term.

loose window gasket

While you two, Gene and Andy, were writing the last 2 posts, I was outside trying the 3M weather striping gasket metal to rubber glue. I applied both sides, waited 10 minutes, put into position, held firm for a bit, then closed the widow down tight. My fingers are crossed that it will hold and seal. If not, I'll start with new.
Thanks, again, for the info. I am always so nervous to try anything. But, this appears to have worked!

Susan.

Good job.

Keep the window closed for 2 days.

Then open the window and spray a lot of silicone spray on that gasket, until it runs off.

That takes care of that window for a year or better.

Next job ???

Andy
