I'll do what you suggest. If I went with better glue, it would likely come loose again where it would be really inconvenient.
My past experience includes a lot of VWs (11), the usual '40s and '50s cars, a couple of Benzes, a 1968 BMW 2002, Maxima, Honda CRX, SAAB 5 door, Neon (gasp), and other chevies, olds, and fords - well after all, I am 70.
This Focus drives better than all of them with the exception of the BMW - nothing I've driven has ever handled as well as that car did, except some other BMWs. SAAB was close, but this Focus is closer. I really like it.
I wish I'd been able to convince SWMBO who will also be driving it that the manual was a good idea. the automatic on ours, the one with the upshift and downshift buttons seems a bit unfocused - can't seem to settle on what it should be doing.
thanks again. I think your advice is sound.
