I continue to have problems with interior wooden trim pieces pulling away from various spots on the dashboard/glovebox. Does anyone have recommendations for an adhesive product they've used for this purpose whose performance they've been satisfied with? I'd appreciate any help with this. Thanks-

I used for my old 500sel the two side adhesive (used to stick the carpet on the floor) it works well but you need a very clean and plane surface. Otherwise I used hot glue (Black&Decker glue gun), the best solution...

Hadn't thought of a glue gun - thanks.

On my 82 300DT glove box trim, I used quick drying two parts epoxy glue. You don't have to take out the old glue. Hold the trim until glue is set, then masking tape it for 24 hours. It works for me.

I like the 3M products. I've used their trim adhesive with some success. I like to clean the aluminum surfaces first with 3M adhesive remover. 3M also makes a blue masking tape, available in most building supply or paint stores, that is guaranteed not to leave adhesive behind for a full week. Also I use Meguiar's #7 and #26 to polish any wood that has to come out of the car.
