I have a 98 318ti e36 and the cloth on the windshield pillers is pulling loose already and it looks cheap. Does any one else have this problem and how did you correct it? I am going to try a glue stick later tonight. Also how do they come off if I need to restretch the material and glue them from the back?

inkyman is on a distinguished road
I had the same problem.

Tried super glue.......soaked thru fabric, looked like crap.

Tried spray adhisive. worked alot better.
You will have to stretch the fabric and spray and stick back slowly.

the way i saw my upholster do it was with contact spray adhesive (i think thats what he called it) he sprayed the cloth, then the pillar, let them dry for a bit, then stuck them together, stretching it a little to make it nice and tight (lol)
