Window Guide "Unglued"

I have begun replacing my passenger side electric window regulator on my 1973 450SL with a used one because the retaining clamp for the lift arm mechanism broke and it would only go down under power.

The problem I have encountered is, upon pulling the regulator out I found that the sliding window guide has become unglued from the window glass. See attached pic.

The questions I have are:
What is the best way to position and glue it back on?
What to use for an adhesive?
Or, would it be better to toss the guide and put some kind of full length window guide strips in to guide the window in its track? If so, is there a source for this material.

Gary,

Did you ever get this sorted out?

I had this problem about 15 years ago. I re-glued the block, but it came off again.

I currently have the doors apart for new felts and have decided to fix the guide again!

Need to know if window panes come out with blocks attached and what type of adhesive to use for a long term fix.
