Default Problem with re-attached rubber moulding

Hello - I now have another problem. I brought my 2004 Roadtrek in to my dealer and had them re-attach the two rubber moulding strips which cover the screws that attach the lower panels to the outside of the van. That was 2 days ago and already it is starting to come loose. This cost me $90 and the dealer used 3M double-sided sticky tape for the job.

I called the dealer and they told me that is the only thing they have to use for this repair! Since this van is 10 years old, I am sure the manufacturer used something very strong and not merely double-sided sticky tape.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks! ClassBee

I don't know what was originally used on your Roadtrek. 3M tapes for automotive applications are great products though. It's what holds the after market window deflectors and hood bug deflector on my van.

Preparation is the key. You have to make sure the surfaces are clean of any wax, grease or old adhesive etc.

I guess I probably would have asked cost first and then second I might have gone to a local body shop and asked them what they use today to attach things to vehicles. And compared prices.

If you want it permanently attached, use Gorilla Glue. I used that on the molding on my 1997 Coach House and it worked fine.
