I used 3M spray adhesive recently and they seemed to hold OK

Most Benz clips are attached by inserting in a hole in the door card and rotating a half turn.

gusmylo, consider buying new clips from a MB dealer.

I'm trying the ABS glue right now.

I had some spare panels so I wanted the clips fixed/repaired/replaced before I did the painting.

The first two shots are of the prep work. I used a small grinder to remove the nubs and create a surface which the ABS cement would bond to.



A couple clips before I ground the excess plastic down.

One of the gauge stick I used to set the distance from the edge.

I won't be able to report the strength of the glue for a couple weeks. I still have to paint the panels and other vinyl trim before I install the panels.

For anyone who is interested the ABS glue was the perfect material to glue ABS to ABS. Go figure.
