2002 330 Sport Coupe.
On both doors the furry trim has seperated from door seal.
Both seals are in good condition so I am not inclined to spend 200 per door to replace.
Local dealer has tried for replcements from BMW without success.
Has anyone had same experience on what clearly looks like a faulty part?
What glue sticks rubber on back of trim to door seal?

RESULT
I followed instuctions in replies below and both seals now repaired.
Before applying the tigerseal I protected the interior trim with masking tape incase I was sloppy with glue.
My only suggestion would be be to cover all interior trim the duct tape will contact with masking tape, as after completing repair I parked car in the sun to speed curing time and on removal of duct tape the area not protected was left with white sticky from duct tape on it.

Seem's to be common fault..have done a couple of these..first clean out any old glue..then go and buy yourself some tigerseal..use the seal inside the strip which has come apart..then apply the seal back to the rubber and hold in place with duct tape...hope it helps.......... have a rag ready with thinners on, to wipe off any excess sealant.....

Thank you David. Both door seals repaired. It took me most time to clean contact adhesive off from my first attempt to repair!
That,s 400.00 Plus labour saved for bit of carefull sticking.
