Window seals

I opened up my slide on my 2015 Palomino Puma 32d BKS and I observed seal hanging off of my window. Can someone tell me what type of adhesive I use when putting the seal back in place and is there a special tool needed to seat the seal back in place? Thank you

Actually it just pushes back into place. If you look at the seal you will see the edge molded into the rubber. You can use black automotive weatherstrip adhesive sparingly on it if it won't stay in place. You need to push it in at sort of an angle to get it to catch. Or you can VERY carefully tap it in place.

Thanks, so pushing in while on an angle and it should re-seat? I will try it on the angle, as simply trying to push it into place didn't work.

Ok, followed your instructions and got the seal seated! Thank you! Now the bigger question is why did this happen? Is this an indication of an unbalanced slide, where one side slides further out causing the slide to be on an angle and catching the seal of the window?
