Unhappy 2007 Mustang GT interior side door panel help.

The leather trim on the side door panels have fallen off. I am guessing since I live in south Florida, heat of this place must have loosened the glue leather trim. I need help on how to glue them back in place. I don't know how I need to start or approach the problem.

I can't buy the good stuff here in CA, the land of fruits and nuts, but try Home Depot, lowes, etc. for some really good 3M spray adhesive. Maybe keep your dullest putty knife handy. For the record, I am not a pro. Just what I would do. Good luck. Hope mine doesn't go.

Very common problem, do a search for the how-to. I think it is in the "general" 05-10 talk section.

Where in south Florida do you live? My door panel inserts on my 07 gt also started to peel, I went to prices custom auto trim on federal highway in delraybeach. Not only did they reglue the inserts they also install a leather bead around the edge of the panel inserts which will keep it from peeling forever, the beading also looks great to. Their phone number is 561-278-8434 hope this helps. If your local let me know and I'll show you mine.

I live near Ft. Lauderdale so that's about 45 minutes of driving for me but I feel like it would be worth it because the peeled off trim is an eye sore. thanks for their number. How much did it cost for them to do that?

I had to help take care of my brother's (06 GT) - took it to an upholstery shop here close by and they said they have done a LOT of Mustangs and (I think) a good deal of Explorers. They said that the way Ford designed the door panels for those years was just....they should have done better.

For both panels, it cost $400. If I would have looked around, i MAY have been able to find a better deal, but he was getting tired of driving around with NO noise dampening from the doors. Lol.

In my defense , Texan, it was quite loud at 65+, and all of the little door-panel-screw clips made a terrible racket down my dirt road!

I did it on a friend red color accent panel trim. It's not a question of temperature but a question of design and material quality.
It tooks me 3 hours for the passenger side and only 2 for the driver side as I had the experience of the other side. It costs me 40$ using neoprene glue.

I had really good luck with contact cement. You'll want to leave your windows down for a while afterwards though because that stuff stinks!

Exactly how I feel about the nasty glare the design of the dashboard throws up onto the window

Door Panel Leather Sagging - **FIX** - MustangForums.com

When using the contact cement from the can, it dries and sets very slowly. So you may have to work out the bubbles and lift-ups every 10 minutes or so until it sets.
