Broken Door Clip :(? How to fix?

Hi guys, so while converting my interior trim to carbon fabric, I accidentally broke off one of the clips. It is the one at the very bottom. Now it wont stay flush, and the bottom part wiggles : (. What can I do to fix this? tape?

sorry, its the door clip.

try asking a dealer to order you a new clip. Or... look on RealOEM for the part.

hmm, i don't think a new clip can be ordered. its the plastic clips that are molded onto the actual trim. When I was popping it out, I guess I pulled too hard and one of them popped out completely.

You can fix it right by buying a new trim, or fix it quick/cheap by.... gluing it. Tape will probably not work. If it does.. it's short term, as the trim will overpower the tape in time.

thanks a lot! It worked. I wore gloves and held the piece in place while spraying 3m super 77 on it. Waited about 3 mins and its solid!

Thanks a lot guys : )
