ONF1R- thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!! The dealership wanted $800 a door........one of my door panels was hanging over the armrest and the other was bubbling. The dealer knocked off 50% so the whole deal was going to be $800.
I sent my 17 y/o daughter to Home Depot to get the glue, painters tape and brushes. I printed your step-by-step instrutions. I only wanted her to scrap off the foam so I could glue the leatherette back.
When I got home from work, both doors were done. And she did an awesome job. I was very proud of her and I think she was pretty proud of herself as well.
You saved me $250. A local upholstery shop wanted $125 per door and I was just about to take my wife's convertible to them this week.
Thanks again for helping me out with the diy instructions and pics!!!

Most of the time we demand a lot from these beasts and it seems sometimes they will demand some back....im glad some are using this post to their advantage and it will save us hundereds in the long run...
Was pointed to this thread from the main board... Mine is coming off as well but the seems are standing strong but the middle is bubbling.. This happened in my Taurus as well and I used spray glue for that one, but I think the CC is the way to go like you used...
Ya know, with a lot of these DIY projects, it's not even so much knowing exactly what to do, they're often not all that complicated. It's just having the ***** to be the first guy to put your @ss on the line and try it yourself so we can all go "Well, that guy did it!" And, I gotta say, this DIY took some brass ones. Seriously, good job. I've got some bubbling that I'm sure I'll have to address some day, and now I'll know I can handle it myself. Very cool.

Any updates on this fix is it holding strong, I'm going to tackle mine this week, it's pretty much completely off and hitting my arm when I drive..
It didn't work for my Texas car, it fell off again about a month after I did the fix. then it started to peel away again after the second fix too. Followed the instructions here to the "T" and used the same products. Not sure why it didn't work for me other than the Texas humidity. I am to the point where I am ready to just drop $800 on a new door panel, it drives me crazy to see the leather hanging off the door.
