Well...this is not plastic. It's real wood. Not cheap to replace.

Edit...I see that Milous confirmed that. $300+!

I should add that I own a Laredo with the plastic trim.. So it seems like an adhesive issue across the board

Re: Interior Wood Trim Coming Off

Some 3m trim tape from the parts store should sort that out if the dealer tells you to pound sand. Its double sided tape for attaching body trim. Good stuff.

Re: Interior Wood Trim Coming Off

I wasn't aware of trim issues.

I wouldn't even bother with the dealer. I'd *definitely* be calling Chrysler now.

Re: Interior Wood Trim Coming Off

At the dealer now (separate reason). I brought this to their attention. We'll see what happens.

Re: Interior Wood Trim Coming Off

Dealership said the only thing they could do is super glue it. Any reason to not let them do this?

I just hope that they don't use too much glue.

That's what I'd try. You want something with a little give for thermal expansion. The dash and the trim probably expand differently which is why it probably popped off in the first place. Superglue is too hard and brittle. Get one drop of superglue where you don't want it and you are in trouble too. Superglue wicks like crazy into places you sometimes don't want as well. It will melt many plastics. Be really careful with superglue. I don't know how thick the trim tape is that Bikemobile suggested, but I'd try one that has a thin foam in the middle. I've seen body trim held with just straight double sided tape and the foam stuff. The foam type might not hold it quite as flush though but I think would have better give.

Re: Interior Wood Trim Coming Off

I would not use double sided tape, it will be thick and wont look right.

I would use contact cement. It's used for applications like this. Veneers and Laminates, like Formica on particle board for counter tops, use contact cement.

It's thin, strong, and will work perfect in your application.

Super glue would be too hard. Any flex might make it crack and cause the same problem. Even temperature changes could make it crack.
