    Driver seat back panel falling off

    Typical cheap part here, falling off as you can hopefully see in the photo.

    Do I have to get a whole new part, is there a simple way to clip it back in and stay, or should I just epoxy and be done with it?

    I'll epoxy if there's no reason to ever take off this panel...Name:  IMG_20191123_121605__01.jpg

    The vinyl has shrunk on the side of the rear panel on our '00 328i. You will want to remove the panel & re-glue the vinyl with contact cement. Don't epoxy anything - you might need to remove the panel to get into the seat later.
