87 190E: Armrest vinyl .. How to re-glue?

The vinyl is pulling away from the armrest area on the right-rear door. I have no problems in pulling off the door panel and drilling a hole or two from the backside, but anyone have suggestions for glue?

Since there is a limited amount of space and air for drying, anyone done this or can suggest glue and/or a way to do it?

Haasman,
I have heard some of these panels were defective and Mercedes has in some cases replaced them.

Let us know what you used if you attempt a repair.

Thanks G.L.

What is more challenging in this particular case is just the armrest area. The only way to apply any adhesive is going to be through the back by drilling holes.

One thought I had was to purchase one of the headliner sprays that comes with a snorkle tube. I would have already done this but I am uncertain about drying in such a tight area.

Any work on the vinyl will have to be done from the inside ....
