Default Suggestion for adhesive for windows

Looking for suggestion on what kind of adhesive to use to glue the passenger side window to the tabs that bolt to the regulator. I had some 3M windshield adhesive. Gave it a couple days to cure but it didn't really work that well. Any tips would be helpful.

Yeah I used some sort of gray 2 part epoxy that I got from the parts store on some of mine one time and it worked quite well. Make sure there is not an obstruction that is causing it to break free of the tabs like a speaker or misaligned window run channel.

I used windshield urethane from 3M, comes in a caulking tube, Advance auto parts has it, never had a problem with the glass coming off the plastic tabs. Same stuff they use to glue the windshield in.

Thanks all. I fixed the obstruction. I forgot the door stop fell into the door when I replaced the weatherstripping. I think I may try to use the 3M windshield urethane again. Possible I didn't use enough last time.
