door body panels coming off

what can i use on my 95 corde door outside panel. the grey panel on the bottom of the door popped off slightly. the damn cold outside must of froze the glue that is holding the panel on. i can wait till the spring or better weather to do this. i just dont want to lose the panel. what do auto body places use to put this panel back on? should i try plumbers silicone or epoxy. need something on there to withstand the shitty weather we been having.

thanks for whatever help u can give me on this

there is no glue holding it on, you have to take it off, there should be a screw on there some where, then slide it of, then line it back up with the clips and slide it back on. good luck.

here is a pic of the car . this is the side im talking about. its the top part of the door where the crome is thats coming off near where the 2 doors meet. not the very bottom part of the doors. so your telling me that these parts slide off and then there should be a bracket held onto the frame so that these plastics slide on. if so i will look at them sometime. as long as i dont lose the entire panel.

i dont know about the concorde but i assume its close if not the same as the trep, if this is the case then they should just slide off and then just slide on by way of these little brackets, heres a picture of the brackets.

3M makes an adhesive made specifficly for trim pieces. You can pick it up at pretty much any auto parts store.

Yeah don't put adhesive on there, and if you lose the screw for the trim piece you can get replacements at the local hardware (which I did anyway cause the replacements are Stainless steel and the old ones were rusting.)
