Fixable? Weather strip driver side door

This piece has become a bit unbound and now rests a bit up and off. I purchased some yellow colored weather strip adhesive but it does not hold the rubber molding in place. Anyone else have this problem or know the correct type of adhesive to get this back in position and looking normal again ?

Yes, I push the thing down every now and then. I'm in for a fix.

by the looks of the video, that seal seems to be exactly why that portion of the lip rises. I'm wondering if I can snake something down to flatten it straight or if i'm better off just buying a new replacement rubber seal. I take it the seal itself should have a part number stamped on it.

Why not just stick it down with a little blob of Tiger seal?
