Body Side Molding Lifting at Each End

2012 Subaru Legacy. One body side molding is beginning to come off about 2" at each end. I would like to repair it without removing the entire molding. Is there an adhesive that I can use? Thanks for your help.

If you check at your local auto parts store, they will have Emblem Adhesive. Clean the area on each piece really well with alcohol and apply the adhesive. It will adhere almost immediately but taping it for a few hours won't hurt if it appears to want to pull away. It is really strong stuff.

3M weatherstripping adhesive should also work. Whatever you use, make sure it's clean enough and that both the sheet metal and the molding is warm enough. Be sure to clean up any errant adhesive right away as it can be a bear to remove later.
