Door Panel falling off...

My passenger side Door panel seems to be just falling off. It looks wonderful. I love it...: I put new clips in it, made the problem worse. lol ANyone know of a type of glue to seal the panel to the door. Anyone else ever have this problem.

Current Car- 93 325is Exhaust, Intake, side marker delete, Cross drilled/slotted rotors, other misc crap.

Old cars 94 750il, 84 633csi, 88 POS Ford Mustang GT

Common problem. Hot glue and what we call 'DUMB-DUMB' up here is what I used. If mine fall off one more time I'm going to replace them with aluminum iamond plate and a draw string...

Thanks i thought maybe just some hot glue but was not sure how it would stick to the panel. LOL this thing just PLOP... comes off everytime you close the door from inside. Thats the only problem i have had so i guess for 6 grand, i should be thankful.

still you'd think that these cars wouldn't have these annoying issues. My 94 318 had the same problem. I have a buddy up here with a 96 318 and he's got the same problem... my 95 has done it once so far... I got so frustrated I ripped both panels off the doors and threw them in the trunk... what a site.... I have a 1984 Jeep CJ-7 that I've put through rock and mud and hell and her door panels haven't fallen off...
