107 hardtop rear window

due to wrestling with the hardtop during removal,the rear window has become unglued
and rattles around when the car goes over bumps while driving making it sound like the whole rear of the top is loose.
i have solved the rattle with tubular door/window foam insulation. this works great to hold the window in place eliminating the rattle and it's inconspicuous but i know it's there.
either here or elsewhere i've read posts about this problem and how others have solved it by reglueing the window and im wondering if anyone can give me some tips on type of glue, etc. i've checked the archives and cant seem to find any answers.
thanks much

I don't think "unglued" is the right word. The window is held in by it's seal. The seal is "melted" and the window pushed into it, just like the front windshield. A new seal and reinstallation shouldn't cost more than $100. Find out who does the glass work for the dealer.
