126 console

Hello out there!
In my 1990 420 SEL, the window switch has fallen through the center console. In addition to the tiny nails or staples, what is the best type of adhesive to use putting them back in place...silicone, liquid nails etc?

I'd go for some kind of epoxy.

Glue wont work.
The part that breaks is the plastic housing that hold the switch in. Poor design. New design cars, the switch breaks and then you buy another switch. Back to the fix. Looking up the console parts on your car, you will find that the plastic part (that is glued to the wood) is available. You have to remove the broken plastic housing part from the wood and replace the plastic. I didn't remove all the plastic, but carefully cut out for 2 switches and replaced. I glued the plastic to the wood using gorilla glue for wood,stone, metal, ceramics ect. I also predrilled for 2 very small wood screws. Turned out real good.
When you have the console out look at the plastic housing for a part number.
