2005 Mustang Interior door trim/vinyl coming loose

My 2005 Mustang GT has tan door panels with a darker color insert of perforated vinyl just above the arm rest. I noticed today that this darker vinyl piece is coming loose at the top, and about half of it has pulled away from the door. This appears to be a foam padded door panel section, with the perforated vinyl glued to it. Its similar to what I have seen on older head liners.

What is the right kind of adhesive to use when gluing this vinyl back in place? The glue has to adhere to a foam-padded panel, and also stick to the perforated vinyl. It probably has to be a fairly thin adhesive layer, since any variation would show up as lumps under the vinyl.

Thanks,

Bruce

I would say (not for sure) something along the lines of a interior trim adhesive.

For you application, I'd spray some into a small container (soda bottle lid?) and use a toothpick to apply the adhesive... I think spraying it would make a mess as the trim piece is peeling, but not off.

Just a thought.

You should always use a bulk spray grade HHR (high heat resistant) top and trim adhesive like DAP or 3M on a car interior. Anything else won't hold up to a hot closed car in the middle of summer. This comes off easily with mineral spirits, so as long as you're using it on vinyl, any excess will be easy to clean off after the job is done.

These three 3M products seem to be the choices that might work. Any suggestions or cautions about what to use or not use? The 08090 sounds like it might be the best overall, but 38808 is specifically listed as a fabric adhesive.

3Mô Headliner & Fabric Adhesive 38808 (specifically for fabric)
3Mô General Trim Adhesive 08088
3Mô Super Trim Adhesive 08090 (seems to be more heat resistant)

Thanks,

Bruce

Bulk spray grade HHR contact adhesives are your best bet, but that means you have to buy at least a gallon. You don't need to spray it, you can brush it on too. Do you have any upholstery shops that work on cars in your area? If so, take your own small container (glass or metal, not plastic) and ask to buy some contact adhesive. If there are no auto upholstery shops near you, aerosols are an O.K. choice for some things, and of the three you listed, the 08090 would be what to use.

Does the part that is failing come off separately? I would take the door panel off and find out if it is attached to the main door panel with some kind of mechanical fasteners. If it does, that would be the best way to fix the problem.

I think I'll take a look at the 3M spray adhesive and see what the parts store has in stock. I'd rather brush it on than spray, but spray may be all I can find on a Sunday.

The door panel is mounted to the door and the fabric section that's falling off is just stuck to the panel with adhesive. The area where it glues on is a molded, indented area of the panel, so I have to glue the fabric on and tuck it into a channel area around the indent. However, the channel appears to just hide the edge of the fabric, and it does not help in holding the fabric on.

I have had the same problem with door trim fabric falling of my mustang. I tried the 3M method more than once and it worked for a short time then fell off. Recently I found a new product in a Mustang magazine that works and looks great.It comes from Predator Mustang. They call it a high end door panel kit. It has pieces for center piece, switches,speakers, and door locks. Finished product is sweet. Check out results on my car.
