Entrance door wind flap

On a recent trip we noticed what Iím calling a wind flap had come loose from the entrance door and was flapping as we drove down the road. It looks like it was glued but not sure. It is a polymer of some type. I can push it back into place, but when driving with any wind at all it pops back out.

Has anyone fixed this without pulling the door? Iíve done that once, and would prefer not to again.

As I look more closely it doesn't have anything to do with sealing the door. It appears to be a hinge cover to hide the shiny hinge. Maybe there is nothing to do, but I am surprised the wind is able to pull it out. It is tucked in pretty nice.

I don't know how you would do that because it is so tight folding around the hinge. I guess you could put some type of non-contact adhesive on the end of the cover, but there is no evidence that the cover ever was glued.

Just to close this one out, I think my solution is to do nothing. Stick it back into place when the winds pop it out of place. Didn't happen in normal winds on recent trip.

Changed my mind. Glued it today with weatherstrip adhesive after I saw glue on the flap. We shall see.
