coupe front glass to sash questions

good afternoon all

I recently had to have some external work done on my passenger door (rust repair)

the guy that did the work in his infinite wisdom removed the glass and apparently it cam out of the sash. found this out when I was putting the glass back in.

my question now when the door is shut there is enough tension between the the glass and the rubber on the the back glass needed to seal that it comes out.

question this appears to be the original rubber in the sash. does anyone know of something to that would make the rubber sticky?, like maybe alcohol or something

any and all suggestions would be appreciated as I really do not to mess with try replace it if not necessary

If there was any welding involved, they guy did the right thing. Welding spatter will damage glass.
I'd suggest a thorough cleaning with detergent, then use some contact cement.
Hardware store usually has DAP brand in a small bottle with a brush applicator.
Re-insert the glass while the adhesive is still wet. Let it dry for a day or so.

Spray the lower channel with WD40, and it should tighten the glass to the channel. Sometimes it takes 24 - 48 hours to take total effect, unless the channel tape is totally dried out. If you need to replace it, it is in the Clarks catalog.

I actually let it set up about 30 mins and then inserted glass
that was several weeks ago and it has worked great
