Default Side Door Panel Vinyl Falling Off

The black perforated vinyl on the passenger door is coming off above the arm rest on my 2006 GT. It has come lose at the top and rolled down onto the arm rest.

Any suggestion on what kind of adhesive to use to glue it back up?

I'm trying to figure out what to do with mine on the driver's side as well, other than trying to pull an edge down and risk ripping it. My problem is that it is coming off the door in the very middle of the panel (looks like a few giant bubbles), and all the outside edges are still firmly adhered to the door panel. Any suggestions out there?

For the bubble problem, I'd consider injecting a small amount of adhesive with a needle-style applicator and rolling those spots flat rather than going thru the entire "remove and replace" effort.

Funny you should mention that, I'm diabetic so I thought about using one of my syringes to "inject" some adhesvie through the leather, just wasn't sure if the adhesive was thin enough in consistency to push through a syringe. Thanks for the idea, maybe i'll give it a try.

Don't give him (Nuke) any ideas on what you can do with syringes...
Crack is bad enough, lol.

Had the same problem with my panels falling off and poor results trying to glue back on with trim adhesive. Then I found a door panel upgrade kit in a Mustang magazine from a company called Predator Mustang. I ordered a red kit to match my paint and installed it one evening. It looks beautiful and to my surprise I took a first place trophy at a the next car show. I entered I highly recommend this as an alternative to glue. Here is a pic of my panel with kit.
