Here are some threads about it:
Glass seperating from fabric top!
Rear window needs help.
Convertible glass needs reinstalled

Quite a few of them if you use search, scroll down to "advanced search", and choose to search under Convertible Vehicles only.

Hope that helps!

Just used the 3M Window Weld last week. Cut the nozzle as small as possible because you're going to be injecting the weld into a very small tight space. Get good duct tape too (I got the $10 heavy duty tape). When the top is up, the rear cloth curtain is stretched out so you can't really pull it towards the window to get enough slack to apply the weld on. The duct tape will hold it in place while you pump in the weld and also holds it there as it cures. I tried lowering the top in various positions to find slack in the rear curtain, but couldn't find any that would let me also access the points needed gluing at the same time.

Only other alternative is to remove the curtain, which I'm not gonna even try because that's takes some major skills in the upholstery biz. If this doesn't hold for a while, I may take it to a shop in the 'hood where it will cost about $50-100 for the labor.

Following the write ups and using the 3M product

when I did mine....
I put a box in the back seat with the seat back folded down
and towels piled up to support the glass
also had the top latches released and held the top open 12"
with another box to keep the pressure off the top and glass connection
used acetone to clean the glass and the back of the top that attaches
pressed it in place and taped it overnight

that was over a year ago and several miles with the top up and down
(daily drive the ta) with zero issues.... cheap and simple fix
