Q: side window came loose

asked by on June 28, 2016

My third row side window came loose from the bar of the car on the driver’s side. The window flapped whenever I closed the door because of pressure inside the car. It looked as if the glue separated from the window, because I can see the round glue mark inside the window. How can I fix this?
