A lot of people have had success with clear silicone, try that and hope it works!

My passenger side had completely fallen off so I used STIXALL Crystal Clear and put a bit of cellotape in a few places until it had set a few days later.

It's nearly 2 years later and it's still holding strong!

Glued mine with contact adhesive last year and it's coming off again. Got a ton of silicone sealer might give that a go. It was the heat this year I think

I recommend Gorilla Glue. Usually a fiver online or diy stores. If you use it, watch out because it expands slightly, but in this application it helps take up any gaps between the seal and the bit of door you glue it to.

I got back to my car one evening and the passenger door felt was draped across the window, from the middle of the horizontal bit all the way to the door mirror. Looked really cr4p!

I used Gorilla Super Glue. It says it sticks rubber on the front of the packet. I put quite a bit on and kept pressing very firmly for the first 10 minutes or so. When it seemed to have gripped, I then used short lengths of masking tape to hold it to the rest of the rubber door seal overnight. Took the tape off in the morning and it has stayed on. That was about 6 weeks ago and the car has been roastingly hot inside on some days.
