OK I am a ASE certified technician/ mechanic and shop manager/ owner. I have always used the Gorilla Snot weatherstrip adhesive. 3M makes it and NAPA sells it! The replies from “Amateur individuals” that tell you that adhesive is not necessary are WRONG. Look at it this way (your original door seals have “stretched out” over time and if you want them to stay in place then Gorilla snot adhesive is REQUIRED! End of story!
As a former shop manager I have had customers try to tell me how to do certain repairs on their vehicles. Kind of like on any Mercedes vehicle you have to replace the brake rotors when you replace the brake pads. The rotors are made of a “softer metal” and they can not be cut on a brake lathe.
I apologize for sounding “rude” but some people don’t know what they are talking about
When the vehicle was assembled in Germany, they used adhesive to install the door seals. When the seals have to be replaced, you have to use the adhesive it’s made by 3M it’s sold by Napa. It’s sold by AutoZone. It’s sold at many parts stores.
