The gasket on our Honda Ridgeline trunk is no longer attached to the lid. I'm guessing the Las Vegas heat took it's toll after a few years. It's been the only problem we've had with the truck.

Any suggestions on what adhesive to use to hold the gasket to the lid?

Have you asked the Honda dealer. They may have a fix for the LV weather conditions. If not, contact cement (the good stuff, not the cheapo in a little bottle) Clean up with lacquer thinner

The Honda dealer was kind enough to offer to bond it for $175, but no suggestions from him on what to use.

Thanks for the suggestions.  Smiley

Gorilla Snot, better known as 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive, available at any auto parts dealer. Once dry there is no cure or known way to remove it, it's basically a contact cement as mentioned above but is thicker and can be applied in one coat rather then onto both surfaces and having to dry before bonding. This helps if your weatherstripping is slotted over a metal ridge since normal contact cement won't allow you to move the part once it's touched. I think it comes in black now too, used to only be yellow, so if you get a bit where it's visible it's not so obvious.

Doubt I need to say it, but clean both surfaces to be glued, lacquer thinner, acetone or even a can of the brake cleaner while you're at the parts store.

Thanks for the link Mr. McNeill.

I've found the kite forum has a turnaround time unmatched compared to specific other forums. And, once again, the boys come through on a variety of subjects.

Funny, we used to call it buffalo snot or elephant snot.  The difference between the coasts.

Your Honda dealer is the kind of dealer that gives the rest of them a bad name. What a freakin' joker, trying to charge you for almost 2 hours of labor for something that should be warranty. This is assumming that the truck is relatively new. What is a Honda warranty, anyway, it's at least 3/36 ? 5/60 ?
Most smart dealers will do a job like that for no charge to the customer, or at least a resonable charge, and look to get you for the big shot, like the '60,000 mile' service, or a round of brakes.

Good luck with your Gorilla snot !
