Default Torn Weatherstripping- 07 Accord

07 Accord 4 door, V6 EX-L.

I've managed to damage the weatherstripping on the B pillar, driver's
door. My thigh rubs against it when getting out and it's torn/worn about
4 inches of the rubber. The rest of it is fine.

Easy fix? Cut out bad section and glue in a new piece? Replace the
entire weatherstripping? Can I do it myself or should I take it to
dealer or trim shop?

if you want to buy a new one, replacing the strip yourself is easy
enough to do yourself - it's just a press-in job. replacing bits will
involve finding a suitable donor at a junkyard and unless you get real
lucky and are super-meticulous, you'll leave small air gaps which will
increase cabin noise.

re glue, there's a special loctite that's great for synthetic rubbers.
can't remember the number but it comes in make-them-yourself o-ring
kits. you'll find it online i'm sure.
