    Greetings! I searched on this topic, but didn't get any good answers, so I thought I'd start a thread. The basics: 2003 GLX 4Motion Wagon, automatic transmission. The question: The wood trim on the inside door handle came off in my hand the other night. Any guidance on the correct adhesive...

    I know this issue has been discussed several times on PW. I'm trying to find a RELIABLE adhesive to re-attach the thin upholstery trim strip that rides above the door. Many suggestions on previous threads. The one that sounds the best is what the user described as "3M industrial grey (thin)...

    I've tried gorilla glue and loc tite but this thing always falls off. Thinking I might need to get my hands on some double sided 3m? What are you guys using to keep this thing on ? Thanks in advance!

    I've read multiple posts about mounting the Votex kit, and finally decided to mount my own. Since I'm not too fond of the gap that using double-sided tape will leave, I want to use some form of body glue/adhesive. Since I waited too long to do anything the Elch Technik P1-Adhesive has turned...

    On the B5 and most other late model VWs, there exists a trim piece at the junction between the headliner and the door seal. This trim piece is the same color as the head liner but is glued to the door seal. Although the exterior edge sits inside a groove on the door seal, the item appears to...

    Anyone have a reccomendation for a spray adhesive to attach trunkliner to MDF? I've used a few different canned adhesives like Super 77, but here in Colorado the dry climate always dries them out and the trunkliner ends up getting loose and looks like crap after about 6 months. Any suggestions...

    A while back everyone helped me loosed my stuck lug nutz from my passats rear wheels so I could do a brake pad exchange. I finally used a long lead pipe that fit snugly over the tire wrench and that gave me the extra leverage I needed. It's been kinda hot here and I just recharged my AC which...

    My 1998 Passat has a cloth interior. The upper part of the driver side cloth has started to come loose and a piece of it dangles now. I want to get it back in place, but just shoving it into place doesn't it keep it there. What kind of adhesive should I use to keep it in place? Do I use an...

    Hey, I finally got my Votex spoiler painted & started installing it, only to find the tube of Polyurethane adhesive had hardened. Anyone know where I can get some of that stuff? Apparently, its special--not just some of your run of the mill Autozone stuff.
