Alright, I have a 95 325is. Recently i have been having trouble with the interior plate comming off on the passenger side around the door handle. I thought at first it was just that, so id stick it back, on, and 15 mins later after closing the door, it came off again. Well, ive found that my door pannel is seperating, and has already partially seperated from my metal door. Anyone know how to get the damn pannel to stay in the door? The expansion screw ins are just sliding out of the holes. I dont know if i have to replace those or what. If anyone has had that problem, or knows how to fix it, please tell me.
Thank you
-Mike.

Is the panel bubbling around the grab handle or door release lever?

As for the panel separating from the door itself, make sure the screws are lined up and give it a good hard wack with the palm of your hand. If they don't pop in replace them. They're pretty cheap at the local parts store.

No, the pannel isnt bubbling or anything, its just when the door hits closed, the pannel moves, throwing the piece off, its no big deal, ive been driving around without them. And i tried pounding the piece back in. nothin it working. You said the parts are easy to find...unfortunely i havent seen them( then again i havent been looking) any idea of where to get them (store names) ive got Thomson Auto around me, along with Autozone, and if i have too i can cart my ass to PepBoys. If any of those have them, just say which one, and what part im actually looking for.
thanks.

Ok, are you talking about the door panel itself, or the separate little panel that's ore of a trim piece around the door handle. Cause those inside ones are attached with these crappy plastic things that you won't be able to find, so for the misunderstanding.

Take apart your door panel and look at the backside and see if any of the little plastic clips are still there, you could use some silicon if you've still got parts.

Otherwise, afro engineer it.
