Dang Door Vinyl Inserts!!!

I know there are threads on this but I just want to rant some. Why didn't Ford learn from the last generation of Mustangs how to install the vinyl inserts so that they won't start to sag over time? I had to fix them on my '06, my '08, and now my '11! Just seeing the thing in the corner of my eye irritates me to no end. I was able to fix the ones on my '06 but the '08 started to come off again after a few months and I wound up having a shop repair them. They still started to come apart over time. So I take my '11 to get a quote to have the drivers side door fixed and they quoted $150...for one door!!

Those of you that have had them fixed in a shop, what was the average price you paid for one door? Right now I just can't justify spending that amount of cash just to re-glue a patch of vinyl so the other question I have is what's the best glue to use to reattach them?


UPDATE 9/10/2019: Well, I removed the vinyl insert on the drivers side door a few weeks ago, cleaned both the door and the insert thoroughly, applied headliner adhesive to both and placed it back on the door. For a while it held great but after a trip to the Florida coast it's started to fail once again along with the passenger door so it's back to square one.

I used spray-on headliner glue. I sprayed the vinyl and the door panel and let them sit for an couple minutes before giving the vinyl another thin spray and placing it back on the door panel. . I used a small plastic putty knife to smooth out any creases in the vinyl and to tuck the edges in. 3 years and they are holding up.

I did the same exact thing as Onez St and never had another issue but I sold the car about a year after fixing them so I'm not sure if it's still holding.

Engine mods - all stock, trust me, wanna run??!!!

Thanks for the reply, guys. I used some 3M stuff on the '06 and it held like a champ. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember what strength it was so the ones on my '08 never held. When I took it to the shop they had to charge extra just to clean the old glue off.



I do know that you have to thoroughly clean the old backing off the door and vinyl before re-gluing them back. Anyway, I just wish Ford had found a way to keep them from sagging and making our otherwise awesome cars look bad.

I strip the panels and glue. Threw the panels in the trash, and replaced them with solid ABS panels from LMR. Cost around $130 for the pair. Happy with the results.

Huberoy, I checked the LMR site and didn't find them. How long have you had yours?

I've had them for about 3 years. The brand name is SVE and called "2005 - 2009 Ford Mustang Door Panel Inserts." May want to call LMR customer service to see if the are still available. I paid 129.99 for the pair.
