Ok so on delivery my Model 3 was perfect and I still love it but after 5 days I have got 3 door seals where the adhesive has let go. Has anyone else had this issue?

I am seeing the same thing on the bottom corners of the doors. Any ideas on what to do? I was thinking of getting some sort of double sided adhesive.

I think I will call the SC, I think it must be a bad batch of seals where the adhesive isn't strong enough or the paint hadn't been properly cleaned before applying the seals. I don't fancy trying to fix it myself as if anything happens later they may say you caused the problem?

That's the rear near side door seal, off side is not that bad but in the same area and the front near side is coming away at the bottom

They simply need to replace that seal. If it is applied while stretched, or the surface isn't completely clean, it'll come off.
