    Trim Panel with broken tab installation

    Anyone know what to do about the dashboard trim panels with broken tabs? Any trick there?

    I've tried JB weld plastic and whatnot, but it refuses to install right. My tabs are pretty much all broken, but I still have those aluminum thingies.

    Try 3M thin double-sided foam tape.

    Does it hold? I feel like tape comes off with time.

    3M tape is used to hold body parts on - get the proper stuff.

    I'll give it a shot. I think I have some. Where is it best applied?

    I can vouch for 3M. It'll keep it retained and you can also vary how much you use. The only "concern" I would have, if all of my pins were broken, would be in case of a bad accident. I wouldn't want any trim pieces flying around when airbags are being deployed and such. Just something to keep in mind when you mount them. The pins really do hold them in very securely for a reason.

    Where exactly do you apply it?

    I found this stuff:
    https://www.rshughes.com/p/3M-4492-W.../021200_24315/

    Which can be used up to 158F. I just tried with some other 2-sided tape I have, but I had no clue where/how to apply it that it would stick.

    Apply the tape to the flattest part of the trim & dash, between where the spikes & plugs should be.

    So tape to the plugs not the dashboard?

    I usually use PascoFix's superglue to fix stuff like that. My body shop guy was the one that showed me what he uses. You still got to prep the area, clean/sand a bit. if there's a gap, use the filler to bridge it. It's like the strongest super glue I've ever used lol It doesn't sound like you have the plastic pieces that hold the aluminum things anymore but should still work.

    As for 3M double sided tape. You're probably going to want the VHB ones. Most of the 3M double-sided tape are pressure activated, so you got to push and kind of wiggle it for good adhesion. You can use adhesion promoter too if you want, but then it would be such a bitch to take off later lol
