Glue recommendation for door panels?

Post by wrybread » Mon Apr 29, 2019 11:44 am

The passenger door panels in my s70 have separated. Any tips on what glue to use to reconnect the two parts (see pics)? I was thinking 3m 90?

And any tips on what to use to reattach the "leather", which is a little separated around the door handle?

I did it with double-sided tape. No issues.
And now about the "leather". It's vinyl actually. Pretty hard to fix. R door cards is great example on how to fix them properly.

There is no easy way to fix this issue as they were probably built originally using a vacuum set-up and as the glue breaks down with age the vinyl shrinks making it hard to fix.

If you want original then it will be hard. There was a company advertising on MVS for a panel to put into that section for a repair and to hide the issue. Looked pretty good.

As for the 2 panels on the doors separating, I have used PL construction adhesive and careful use of wood clamps and weights to prevent indentation on the vinyl (like a 'pro' did on my 'R' door panel).

You may also find various mounts have broken off inside the panel, including a weird little one near the door button on the top of the panel. This one supports the rear of the panel in that area. I used to throw them away until found what they were for!!

I've had pretty good success so far using hot glue gun.

I went with 3m 90 spray adhesive and a 3m "emblem adhesive" that was lying around. Looking good so far. Luckily my friend has a vast collection of clamps, which appears to be the secret sauce. Used paint stirrers behind the claws.
