Default 2007 mustang interior door panel help

the material that is above the arm rest on the door panel is falling down in my car, i've tried super glue and gorilla glue and neither were successful at re attaching them. I nutted up and took a power stapler to the drivers side (i know extremely stupid no need to beat me up here) but now the passenger side is falling down too. does anyone know of a good way to fix this can you get new or substitute material and reattach or i've seen some on here who have painted there door panels. I'm just looking to see if someone else has had this happen and what others may have done.

Take the car to an upholstery shop and have the re-glue/repair the panels.

I had this happen to me too, and it really bugged me. There's a thin piece of foam that is sandwiched between the trim the the door panel. The foam rots away and causes the trim the separate. Here's what I did:

1) With a small flat-tip screwdriver, gently pry out the top edge of the trim.

2) I masked the area off with newspaper and masking tape.

3) Using an industrial strength spray adhesive, spray an even coat on both the loosened trim and the door panel. I used one made by 3M that I had left over from another project.

4) Let dry for a few minutes, then starting from the center of the trim and working to the outer edge, gently press the trim to the panel.

I'm really happy with the results.

Same thing happened to me on drivers side. I found an article on here that helped me in solving the problem. I pulled mine down to the arm rest, careful not to pull it all the way out. Then cleaned off all the factory glue until the fabric on panel and upholstery was clean.

I then bought a can of Weldwood contact cement from Walmart (about $5) and using a foam brush, applied it to both sides carefully. This is after taping off the areas around trim, on the door panel to ensure none got on the door.

I let the first layer of contact cement dry about 10 minutes, then came back with a second layer. Then using a wet cloth I worked it smooth to the top edges and used a small putty knife to push it into the seams.

Kept going back every 10 - 15 minutes with wet cloth to smooth it out and now, it looks great.

Good luck!
