I would start at a M-B Dealer. Just go to the Parts department and tell them what you're looking for. Small clips like that probably won't be more than a couple of bucks, and it will help you to start developing a relationship with the guys behind the parts counter. They have a lot of leeway in pricing, and if they like you they can use it.My 2000 door panels are doing the same thing. Any suggestions where to purchase clips?
Thanks for the advice.............My problem is the insert at the front and back of the door have come "unglued".............I can pull out this panel maybe 1/2". Does one apply the "glue" to the whole back side of the panel or where???..........Yes, I understand, as a fella describes after your thoughts, that one has to figure out a way to hold the panel in place until the "glue" sets..........Just really wonder about the where to apply the "glue". Take a small brush and apply it like over the whole back side of the panel????? This is perhaps a 3" or so tall piece and reach back in with the brush maybe 2" or so............Thanks for the help........God bless.........Dennisthe 2 inner parts held together by your door handle. What happens to most of them, is that the two inserts becomes unglued from the black shell. .
FWIW: Here are photos of the simple, permanent solution to my door panels popping out at the front and back. I realize it's a visible fix, but it took me all of 3 minutes.
Ah, I didn't catch on that it was the upper panel. I'd be hesitant to put screws in the upper panel, though. Sorry for the misunderstanding and good luck. Unfortunately, I've never used the glues mentioned above.NICE fix and looks factory from these old eyes.....Thanks for the pic as I needed it's contrast to point out exactly where my panel is loose...........NOT the whole door panel or the lower white panel that Davey fixed; but front and back where I have outlined in green.......Passenger and driver door both have this......I talked about this above and yes, am worried about eating the foam with the abs cement/glue/adhesive. Yes, one could rivet it...........how about some of the various kinds of upholstery "contact" cements or glue. Even the counter top type???.............thanks........God bless......Dennis
