Mine started pulling loose as they typically do. I restreched the material on the door panel itself and reglued it, and I am wondering what to use in reattaching the insert above the armrest. It has no screws or fasteners. It was glued from the factory. It kinda looks like contact cement that is used for formica. Just curious...

Contact cement and gorilla glue are the two things commonly used to tack it back up.

What kind of glue did you use to hold down the material after you restreched it? Many of them break free again within a month or two.

I work as an electrician at a limousine factory. I built replacement panels, using the factory as a template. The upholstery people cleaned the old foam/glue stuff off, restreched it and used a contact glue to hold the bulk of it down, and used a super-glue-type adhesive with an accelerator spray to make sure the corners didnt come loose again. I didnt think of the gorilla glue, that would probably work rather well.

I think the reason most peoples come loose again, is that the old foam isnt thoroughly cleaned off. If you just spray over the old foam, it will pull away in a short amount of time. This is why I just built new ones, using the same 1/8" masonite/interior board as the factory, instead of trying to clean the old ones up.

My electronic department is right next to the upholstery, so I have gotten to know them quite well, and its probably a good thing :P

I used super glue ages ago. It;s coming off again but now at all the door panels. ALSo the part of the panel is being seperated where the padding is attched at the black vinyl plastic deal. It doesn tlook pretty.

driver's window and door panel

I have a e34 ('93), my drivers side window is off the track and I'm trying to figure out how to pull the door panel, I got the hex screw off the door handle, I found the torx screw behind the power window control, but there is still something holding it on near the middle of the door. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any help understanding the window mechanism would also be appreciated.
