What is the best way to repair/adhere the "leather" wrap that has come unattached from the plastic molding around the windows due to heat and age?
I have a 2004 Buick Park Avenue with 70,000 miles on it. It has spent 11
years in the direct Florida sun and heat and is starting to feel the effects.
The "leather" which is wrapped around the plastic molding around the
doors and windows is starting to become unattached and curl back. What
is the best way to reattach it? A certain type of adhesive, etc.?
The heat has also caused the soft leather dash molding to become
unattached where it wraps back up under the steering column and hang
down to where it blocks the view of the pedals. How can that be
the surface that these moldings and leather parts was attached to is backed from the sun and it is not easy to fix it..my advice is to purchase a used part from the junk yard or to take it to appostery shop and have it done the right way
Yes take it to someone who knows what they are doing, you will have better results.
Upholstery or trim shop is the best bet. They will have the proper adhesive to get it reattached.
