My driver's side door vinyl by the armrest just started peeling, too. I bought the interior spray adhedsive (expensive orange can) and it holds for about 2 days or so. I have tried twice. Mine is an all black interior that I like and want to keep. Let me know what works for you please. It is driving me nuts.

So far my fabric cement is holding. I hardly ever drive my car so we'll see what it does rotting in the sun.

Well I am glad to announce that I have driven my Focus about 600 miles the past two weekends in the blistering heat and the cheap ass wal-mart fabric cement has held fast!

Did you clean off all the stock adhesive before applying the costly interior spray stuff? All I did was brush all that factory gunk off with a whisk broom before gluing mine.

Well, mine didn't have excess gunk that you could whisk away. Mine has the plastic with what looks like kind of brushed fiber soft adhesive. It is not sticky to the touch. I don't know. I will try the fabric cement for sure this weekend. What does it look like? What kind of bottle?

Mine looked like it was held on with a huge backing of black double sided foam tape and it was pretty dry rotted so I wisked that off.

I used "Dritz Liquid Stitch Fabric Mender" stolen straight from my mother haha. She said she got it from Wal-Mart. I'm kinda glad that my 3M Super 77 was all dried up since this stuff was really easy to work with and could be smoothed all around under the vinyl.

When you go to walmart just head to where they have the fabrics and sowing stuff. I think they carry a couple. Usually in a squeeze tube but could be in a bottle. Hobby lobby also sells 4-5 different fabric glues as well. In case you have a Hobby Lobby near you.
